TFW you're noticing a steady uptick in not-CWed politics posts... :/
Guys, please, PLEASE respect the CW norms over here. It's so, so helpful to let people have the choice as to whether to interact with politics, rather than shoving it in their faces.
The storm last night made this both a pleasantly cool and visually entrancing morning to bike in.
