Riding in the sleet

Firstly, let me just say that it is not something that I would recommend.

I left for work this morning, on the TDM, and it was raining a little bit. I did contemplate taking the car ‘cos snow was forecast “a little later”.
Little did I know that in 10 minutes time I would be riding through a sleet blizzard.

The worst part is that every 100-200 yards I would have to wipe the layer of slush off the visor.
This meant that my left index finger got very cold, oh and of course the heated grips got cold.
It was a vicious circle, just as finger was getting a hint of a possibility of heat, I had to de-slush.

I got to work in good time and non the worse for wear.
Well, that is if you ignore the frozen finger, the snow cone in my crutch, and generally looking like a walking Slush Puppy.

Hey ho. At least it was relatively dry on the way home. ๐Ÿ™‚
