Bad but good!

Waited until lat in the afternoon to head out.  It was getting dark so I suited up with full lighting.    Winds were high ,  it was raining and getting colder ...near freezing.     Wore my usual cold weather stuff,  Mizuno Thermal topped with my Ron Hill Jacket ,  Tights and my Saucony Exodus Gortex with Toe Socks.    Headed south on the 2nd intending on turning around at 5K.   A few Ks in I decided to take advantage of the worsening weather and go further.  Rain had turned to sleet and the sleet turned to snow.  The wind was blowing so hard it was moving me around.  Footing was so-so there was still lots of ice on the road.   Turned around just shy of HWY 4 and headed back.      Logged a total of 16K at a surprising
avg 6:11 pace.
