Snowing and sticking in E. Vancouver, too. I took a short spin around the 'hood and it was a blast! Cutting through the 2" or so of fresh snow was easy. The challenge were the few car tracks. They pack the snow into white ice and make those longitudinal ruts and ridges that catch bikers' balance. Great fun to try and stay in the car track as far as possible until...oops! It went around a 90 corner and out came my back end. Almost caught the slide but then the front washed and down I went. Zero damage to anything, speed ~8mph. Woohoo! Cool tracks! Have fun!

(BTW, good on JM for supporting anti-SOPA Blackout day on the homepage!)
