Yeah, yeah. Even in Northern California it's usually rideable weather in winter. Was it cloudy Cabrito? Once around the block almost wasn't worth puttin' a helmet on for.

I have another 4-5 inches of snow on the ground today and highs this week will be around 0f.

No snow here! I'm a happy boy. We've been getting rain, so the ground is soaked, but the roads are fine. The temps are hanging in the 40's-50's mostly. Haven't even needed to dig out the mighty Hippo Hands.
