In my part of Oakland county last night, we had rain turned to sleet then to snow as the temps dropped. My driveway and street were covered with about a half inch of snow when I left this AM. What really looked promising was that there was a nice layer of snow bonded to what had been glare ice on the safety path nearest my home.
I've seen this magic recipe I've seen work in similar past winters to make icy trails more rideable again. I plan to ride either PLRA or LOHS/BMs later on this evening to see if the magic worked there. If it didn't, well that's what studded tires are for.
