December 1st, and still no snow-- so still commuting by scooter from the New Suburban House to the office! Today was the first below-freezing commute (29º when I left) but it was sunny and fairly pleasant.
Here's a fabulous fact I learned recently: if you're using those disposable iron-filings-with-charcoal hand warmer packs, and you only need them for a short period (say, four miles of scootering), you can seal them up in a ziploc afterwards and they abort their heating process until you re-open! This is great. One set of hand warmers can last a week of commuting this way!
