Blanket of snow

We finally got a bit of snow on the ground. I woke up in the early dark to see the neighborhood all blanketed in white, and for a few minutes I entertained the idea of riding my bike to work very early, to avoid traffic and have that first commute-in-the-snow experience that I've managed to avoid so far.

So about 8:00 I get a phone call. It's my sister. "Are you riding today? I'm out in front of your house. Are you still asleep?"

Oh, I was so asleep. I was sleeping the sleep of going back to sleep because it's snowing. I was sleeping the sleep of two duvets in a cold bedroom. I was sleeping the sleep of pure white light seeping in through the blinds. "Yes," I said.

By the time I woke up for the day half an hour later, the temperature had risen and the streets were clear. The worst I had to contend with was a snowy bike and a rather chilly ride.

Snow on bike

As usual in "bad" weather, I had the bike lanes and paths largely to myself.

My life is, on the whole, pretty awesome.
