Just when you thought that it was Spring then Bam! It was a slippery ride in this morning since I had removed the studs from the tires. I guess the state isn't confident since they changed the last day for studded tires for the second time. Usually, it's April 15th and they had already moved it to May 1st. Now it's May 15th. Needless to say, this weather is a little unusual.
I don't think that this is the weather that Dom had wanted to see but since he's waiting for parts, the weather probably doesn't matter much as long as it clears up later in the week. Some folks here at the University mentioned that the road was pretty treacherous coming in from North Pole and Chena Hot Springs. Probably since folks had gotten used to clear roads and were driving a bit too aggressively.
This morning after a couple of audioconferences, I went down to College Coffeehouse to meet with a couple of other riders and Dom. Talked sidecars with George almost the entire time. It's pretty wet out now but not very slippery at all anymore. This is one of those times when reverse sure would've been nice to have as I needed to pull the bike in using the rear rack on the sidecar through the snow.
