We've had snow fall in Kirkland. Three to five inches of snow fell and stayed for several days. The eastside of Lake Washingotn tends to be a little cooler than Seattle, so we still have the snow while the Emerald City is, well, green.
I didn't ride my bike much this week. The cold doesn't bother me and the riding gear is good at protecting me from the worst of it anyway. The black ice on the bike trails is the problem. It is too easy to slip on the tiniest patch of ice and falling on rough pavement with but a millimeter of lightweight skin fabric for 'protection' can be a bad thing.
I'm off to view the extended version of the Two Towers.
