So far the snow has mostly held off, but we're getting a fairly ferocious winter storm today/tomorrow. It's mostly been my least favorite New England weather- 33 F and raining- blech!
I was all ready to give myself an out. I was either going to walk to the T, or ride to the T and take my bike on the T home. But once I got out, it didn't seem so bad after all- just spitting, not really raining hard.
So next thing I knew I was halfway home.
I just wanted to report that this weather is where my new trench coat excels. It was the perfect warmth, was absolutely waterproof, and covered me to the tops of my kneecaps. The bottom 1/2" of my skirt got damp (although not soaked), and my tights were wet on the tops of my knees, but the rest of me was just fine.
The brim of the Yakkay worked well to keep stuff out of my face as well.
We need a local distributor of Yakkay, because I've had tons of interest in them from people I've met, not just at bike events, but randomly on the street.
