A frosty beard on Junior should be a strong enough indication that the Vespa should stay in garage. Still, I was running scenarios through my head from the time I woke up. The Weather.com app indicated 13F and clear skies -- certainly not a show stopper. Looking ahead the forecast showed ice and snow moving in around 6pm. I've heard that story before only to find snow falling three hours early.
Thirty minutes of dog action chilled my body sufficiently that the luster of riding to work wore off. All the ride variations and rationalizations were reduced to "I'm too cold to get on the Vespa."
Good thing too. The little ice balls started falling around 4pm...
