The forecasters were predicting snow and sleet. I went to bed resigned to driving this morning. I, also, knew there was a chance the forecast could be different when I got up. It often is, and it was. The snow, sleet, or wintry mix seems to have missed the area I ride in completely. Apparently the storm stayed to the southeast of us.
When I was out at lunchtime I saw a guy spreading salt on the sidewalk and steps in front of a restaurant. I wondered if he knew something I didn't. My first thought was about my camera. I forgot it and left it home this morning. I was going to be really upset if I had to ride home in snow and didn't have a camera to document it. It turned out the fellow was merely over reacting to rumors of snow. This is a common past time here in St. Louis. The mention of a snow storm leads to the grocery stores being mobbed. Oh well, the Michigander in me finds it all rather amusing.
Tomorrow looks like a ride day, but tis' the season to not count one's chickens before they are hatched.
- 33F/1C and overcast for the ride to work.
- 32F/0C and overcast for the ride home.
