The photograph was taken on January 2nd.
Today was the coldest day this week, -6 °C in the morning and -4 °C in the afternoon. Tomorrow it will be warmer, and the weather forecast promises some rain. Thus, roads will be wet and slippery in places where there is snow and ice. But the studded winter tires have kept me safe while commuting by bicycle.
