Yeah, maybe I am.
Snow fall and I'm riding, at least part of the way. 10°F and I'm riding. (For the record, I think that's about my bottom limit, at least with the gear I have. My feet were cold that morning!)
And I arrive at work or home, my back drenched in sweat, feeling awesome. (Thankfully, we have a locker room at the office w/ showers!)
Tonight, as I start this post, it's snowing out. Big, wet flakes. It's quite beautiful. Clinging to the trees. I think there's about 1-1/2 inches in the ground already. I don't know how much more will fall.

I'll decide in the morning if I'll ride the whole way. Or if I'll load DB (an older hybrid bike with wider tires) on the rack and drive into town before riding 4.5 miles to the office. The main issue is the 1.5 miles of highway between Waunakee and Madison. So, we'll see if it's still snowing in the morning. And if the plows have been out.
I'll finish the post tomorrow. And maybe include a pic or two of my bike commute.
The Next Morning: Madison ended up with about 4" of heavy wet snow. A little less in Waunakee. Despite that, the highway between the suburb and the big city was not especially safe to ride on. So, I did end up driving into Madison and parked at a strip mall just over half-way to the office. I call this type of commute a "Park-N-Bike" I rode DB about 4-1/2 miles from there.
