Where's my snowmobile suit?

I look out my window this morning and see Humboldt Street covered in snow. It's still snowing, so I figure, Hey, might as well take my mountain bike, deflate the tires a little, wear Carhartts, rain jacket, waterproof shoes, etc. Of course, I ride a half-block on Humboldt and turn onto 12th and the street is almost snow-free. Overprepared again, I say to myself.
Then I take a right onto Sherman and just before the Capitol building, a guy passes me, on a fixed gear, slicks, no brakes, no helmet, not even a hat, U-lock stuffed in his back pocket. Perfect.
