This morning when I walked the dog, the temperature was -8°F and the windchill was -25°F. To make matters even worse, Madison has a had an unfortunate weather pattern so far this year. We get freezing rain to make all the streets and sidewalks icy. Then, before the ice even has a chance to melt, we immediately are treated to frigid temperatures and a good coating of snow. All of this combines to produce less than ideal biking weather.
