    The streets are looking totally fine now. They may refreeze at some point, but it looks at this point like Operation You're-Going-To-Bike-Today? was a smash success.

    To be honest, that wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. My thought was that if it got too bad, I'd bail and take the bus. I didn't bail, and the bus I was behind didn't go any faster than I did....
