Snowing again

I was exhausted last night so I couldn't face the bike trainer in the basement and MK and I did a hour of Pilates on the living room floor instead. (That isn't a euphemism unfortunately). This evening I will certainly hit the trainer and I there is at least on of this weeks DVDs that MK won't want to watch that I will be able to pass the time with. I am really missing getting outside on my bike, I'd hardly call myself a fair weather rider and I have been out in some pretty cold weather this winter (I think -9C was my coldest ride so far) but when the roads are really slippery and icy, I just can't justify the risk of getting hurt for a bit of fresh air so I tend to stay indoors at the moment. I think I'll have to get out this weekend, even if it's just for a short ride. I'd love to head south for a few days or warm riding in March, but I haven't seen anything that I can join in with (my club is going to Bornholm at Easter but I have to work over that weekend).
Any ideas?
Today I am out and about again and it is currently snowing fairly hard again. I can't imagine this snow going before April at this rate and it is getting rather depressing although it does make everything a bit lighter and brighter than it would be otherwise.

    Running with spikes? At least you won't slip.
    Could you not use xcountry skis?
    At least you'd work up a sweat.

    How about joining a book club or crochet or table tennis.
    There are many activities that can be pursued in the comfort & warmth of your own home, apart from Pilates & TV.
    Do you get Jeremy Kyle?
