We've had extremely cold weather for the last week, but practically no snow. I have mixed feelings about that. On the one hand, it's easier to get around during a dry winter. On the other hand, we got new snow tires and worry about wearing them out prematurely by driving on dry pavement. And of course, there's no cross-country skiing at all yet. Most years, the trails are just starting to be trackset in late December. Maybe I should dress up warm and ride my bike all over the place - that would guarantee a big snowfall!
