The photographs were taken on November 19th.
Today there was wet snow on top of ice in the morning. In the afternoon the snow had melted, and there was water on top of ice. The Marathon Winter tires were once again a necessity. When I came home, I replaced brake pads with new ones. Also, I installed new cleats to the bicycle shoes, because the old ones were quite worn out.
