There is so much snow today–both on the ground and falling from above. I deemed it way too slippery to take the bike or even walk to music class on Phinney Ridge today, but my three-year old really wanted to go for a bike ride. I took them out for a little spin–just enough for him to get cold and start complaining. I hope he’ll remember his discomfort and never request a ride in the snow again. The bike slid a little bit, on a patch of ice hidden under a pile of snow, but it was while we were standing [almost] still at a light. So we didn’t fall down, but just got a good warning for how tricky riding in the snow can be.
