The ice is beginning to melt away and it's plain to see that this was no snow storm. Our little town of Lexington has been covered in ice for over a week now... not snow. As I was riding to work, I could hear loud cracking sounds the whole way as this stuff began to separate from itself. There were also several times I could see huge pieces fall from trees.
From a distance (like the background of this pic), you can't tell a difference between ice and snow. But when you get up close (like you see on the grass under my bike) you can tell that this is crunchy stuff.
Honestly, it's much more of a pain than snow. I love riding in the snow. I hope to see some more soon.
