With the temperature so near freezing I had to watch along this road for water and ice. About a mile ahead the road runs along a working limestone quarry and they spray a lot of water on the road to keep the ice down. I suspect they add salt in the winter to keep it from being a sheet of ice but at this time of year I wasn't sure.
Made it to work without incident and appreciated the clear fall morning. Another ride to work that I put in the outstanding column.
