It's snowing

I'll dislike walking in it later but do love how our first real snow of the winter looks.

Riding in it is interesting at times.
People all say it is 'too dangerous' when they see me on a bike, but the don't realise this is one of the few things that slows drivers down, so I feel safer than usual...

I'm only really beginning to cycle again and I'm really glad that most of the places I go regularly I can reach by means of bike paths or quiet side streets. The few places I have to go that involve cycling on the street with traffic are not some of my favourite journeys. Especially because I really don't cycle very quickly. But I try to keep in mind the advice someone gave me when I first learned how to drive: don't think about what's behind you, don't let what's behind you distract you. Concentrate on what's ahead. Whoever's behind you is responsible for concentrating on what's ahead of them (i.e. you).
I know it's not entirely accurate but I've always found it a good thing to keep in mind in order to keep calm.
Our snow had been rained away by the Sunday morning, typical. I don't at all like the sound the brakes make when it's wet, not to mention how they don't really brake, just sort of kind of slow down a bit but at least I did cycle to and from work today and yesterday - despite the rain!
