I guess I am also certifiably insane...
The day the Dr gave me clearance to go back to work, I hopped on the same bike and went for a ride. I now use that same bike for my daily commute to my new full-time job, and my part-time/sometimes job at the cycle shop (more along the lines of "as often as I can get there").
Here in FL, we don't see snow, but liquid sunshine is quite frequent. Just today, it rained on my way to work, and on the way home. Such is life. But of course, it was nice and sunny (and muggy) all day at work...
Being recently off the bench, money has been tight, and to be honest, the bike is the only vehicle I have with a valid tag right now. A couple good paychecks and I'll get my insurance and renew my tags for my truck and van, but even then, I'll be primarily riding the bike.
Generally for me, it's got to be heavy winds or temps 40 and under with rain, or some other serious weather issues to keep me from riding.
Of course, that doesn't count the days I end up carrying stuff too big to safely carry on the bike, but that's another situation entirely...
