So, the extended craziness with the snow and the ice and the FREEZING! and glaven... (Think Jerry Lewis as channeled by Professor Frink.) I'm getting fed up with it. That's right, I'm getting snow tires for my bicycle.

Crazy? Maybe. Crazy like a fox! At least I won't feel so trapped in the snow and/or ice. The sidecar rig is fine and all, but the only tires I can find for it are terrible in the rain much less snow or ice. I'd rather ride the bicycle more anyway. It just works. Well, hopefully it'll just work.
They should be here in about a week, which, according to cosmically preordained laws, will mark the beginning of the warmest stretch of winter weather Seattle has ever seen. I'm looking forward to the irony. Stock up on warm-weather clothing now!
