Ice CHUNKin'

There was an ice storm today for all of 12 hours or so. But, it was icy, make no doubt. Megulon-5 and I could not but help ride our sidehacks around, which, it turns out, are perfection for dealing with slick roads: more control than a car or a regular bicycle.

After a bite to eat we rolled over to Lake Siracusa, which had frozen over, and took turns alternating between riding up to the ice at a good speed and trying to put your hack into a 180-360 spin, and sweeping snow off the ice.

Eventually Big B. came and joined the fun. Handicapper has three wheels, sorta. Right?

Finally, the flask I had was empty, no one could hit me with a snowball. Conclusion: it was time to go. On the way home freezing rain started to fall and there was not a single car on the roads. I felt like Han on his Taun-taun on Hoth, it was awesome! Ice was actually freezing on the bike while I was riding.
