    I normally work from home on Fridays but will go into the office to honor International Winter Bike to Work Day. I hear we might be in for another cold snap. Good thing many of us already know how to bike in cold weather!!

    As long as it’s not freezing rain during the commute, I’m biking!! Oh, all right, I’ll figure out something for that too….luckily temps will be low enough to not worry about that.

      Freezing rain is my least favorite winter weather, that’s for sure. But on the other hand, it often makes for gorgeous trees to look at!

      I’m thinking of putting on one yak-trak for icy days. Studs for my feet!
