I’m not a messenger nor have I ever been one, but I do commute everyday. Regardless of the weather, I ride my bike into Manhattan and to work. Today I got off work a bit later than usual. I checked the weather frequently because I knew it was going to rain and snow today. “Snow at 7:30”.

As I got off work, it was raining and by the time I got to the bridge, it felt like there was a 5 degree drop in temperature. As I pulled up to my apartment, I noticed that my whole jacket was frozen. My pants weren’t because they were moving, but my shoulder, sleeves, backpack, beard, everything was frozen. By the time I got the camera, most of it had melted. The rain hadn’t even froze at that point!
