    It snowed multiple inches! In Seattle! It was so pretty.

    (I was underprepared, having let my purple snowmonster sit around unmaintained for so long)

    I need to draft my justification for obtaining a fatbike now.

    And you thought snow in Seattle was weird? How about the UAE:

    Yes, and it is 61 degrees(!) right now on 2/6/17 at 5:00 pm and is expected to hit 69 tomorrow!!! I'm totally down with sending the rest of the world our cold and snow.

    The word "snowed" in your first sentence is all the justification you need.

    I had to take the bus, because it went below freezing overnight, and if you thought Seattleites didn't know how to drive in snow ... well, see them on ice.

    Fact check: true.

    To be fair, there are hills all over the place. If I tried an incline-avoidy commute (for example, if I don't want to climb/descend on ice), I could get as far as the exit of my building. I wouldn't do this even with studded tires, for fear of catching an acute case of the death.

    Acute, and potentially permanent.

    My morning commute was interrupted by a car that somehow thought that it could squeeze onto the Capital Crescent Trail. (See 4:15 or so in the video.)
