I rode, figure I owe it to myself to be able to operate in all weather.
Jeans got a little wet but I did wear the bright reflective Joe Rocket Pheonix so they had the best chance to me.

I got off work this morning at 7am. I slept on the couch at work till 10am to let the fog burn off a little. I had a really bad feeling this morning about riding in that stuff. Visibility was less than 200ft and I just did not feel safe going out in it. In that case I thought better safe than sorry.

Same here. Cold is not that bad.

The fact that I get faster to work makes the cold worth it.

I didn't check the weather this morning, I just rode in. I was nice and toasty in my gear with the exception of my hands.

I'm starting to think that freezing hands can be a safety hazard, as you start to lose mobility and feeling.
