February snowfall

Finally got some snow this February.  It’s only about the second decent snowfall this year. 

In weather like this I get asked if I have the snow tires on.  I looked them up, and there are winter tires available for bicycles.  Typically they have metal studs for ice traction.  I don’t need that.  Mostly it’s slush that I have to deal with.  The fat tires are poor in that, since they pack down the snow making more work to plow through.  My first winter doing this, I used the hybrid with 32C tires.  They tended to knife easily through the snow.
