Winter solstice and the new project

After a wet and miserable weather period we had a change to slightly better yesterday. Temperature dropped to -1...-2°C and it snowed just a little. A very thin layer of snow still makes a big difference when it's the darkest time of the year, the winter solstice.

I've been commuting with 9:Zero:7 again, actually the whole time. The bad ice conditions have vanished due to warm and rainy weather.

Also, the next project, DIY studded Surly Nate tires, is going forward. I have the tires, studs and tools ready.

What a great way to start holidays! I happen to have some extra free days off from work. After Christmas I will start working with this project.

The weather is forecasted to stay this way till tomorrow morning, so now is a brilliant opportunity for a short overnighter.
