Grey Cold Rain

I'm liking the idea of white outerwear for being visible but not flashy, particularly paired with black. It might be even better in the summer when the world is more green, less grey...

In this photo you can see the challenge of twin cities on a river: who is responsible for the bridges? I don't know, but I do know that the sidewalks on the Longfellow Bridge are not shoveled until at least 2 weeks after any major snowfall. Seems the street cleaners don't pass too often in the bike lanes either.

The DCR is responsible for clearing the bridges...and they do a terrible job, in general (don't sweep very often; takes days for them to clear the pedestrian lanes; rarely clear the bike lanes). Here's a link to their "winter storm plan":

The folks at MassBike have tried (with some success) to get the DCR to clean the Longfellow more regularly, but it's an ongoing battle.
