When looked out my office window yesterday, sometime around 10am, it looked like this.
It continued to snow off and on for the rest of the day, before it turned to snain–a delicate combination of snow and misty rain that freezes to everything. Besides making things a bit slippery, it also repeatedly covered my glasses with a thin, opaque covering of ice. Between having to stop to clean my glasses (having forgotten my usual bandana) and riding half-blind while looking over them, I was glad to get home in one piece.
My bike was still covered with ice this morning, so I parked it in a spot under the colonnade of the building across the street, where its always warm and dry.
