Snowstorm in Copenhagen

Snowstorm Group
An unexpected snowstorm blew in over Copenhagen Saturday night. Should have been rain, but it fell as wet snow propelled on gale force winds. Bloody cold, too. The busses were busier than usual but the bikes continued flowing. Quite impressive to see so many Copenhageners on their bikes heading out for a Saturday night in that weather.

Snowstorm Ploughing
The snowploughs had their work cut out for them. Here's one at 22:15, flying through town, clearing the snow on the bike lanes. I rode around on snow for the most part, but like all the cyclists I saw, I just took it easy so there was no problem, even though it was slippery until the snowploughs arrived.
