Grey day means no VFR flying... but that doesn't mean one can't go biking! And we did! In the snow and ice! Bundled up warmly, we trekked off along the lake to get some groceries and enjoy the winter landscape along the shoreline.
The hardest part was what to do with the bikes upon return. The typical ride in weather like this yields about a bucket and a half dull of slush, ice and -- eventually -- dirty water. Not great for the wood floors in the apartment! So Tats fashioned a drying mat out of two black garbage bags, and we parked my bike on top, until it rides again, to school tomorrow morning.
