How Low Can You Go?

When I rode home this evening the temperature was 1 deg F. Pleasantly cold in my opinion, but not really a temperature where I particularly enjoy fiddling around with bike issues.

When I went out to the garage a few minutes ago I noticed my front wheel looked like this:

I have been experimenting with really low tire pressure lately (often 10-17psi) , but this was a bit much. I'm guessing I pinch flatted when I was jumping berms the snowplows so kindly left blocking the bike path. I'm just glad I didn't have to fix it mid ride.

I just bought a new patch kit at the shop on Monday, somehow I miss placed the 3 or 4 patch kits I already own. Guess I get to put it to use.
