Apparently now unlucky! Same here - yesterday morning was 44F and rain, by 4:00 is was low 30's, snowing, and 20mph winds. This morning 25F but at least the winds have abated and the sun is out. Had a first this morning, my rear brake froze on. I've had levels get stuck but this was the brake caliper sticking after pulling. I had to got off and physically push it back. I think it was a combination of rain yesterday, lots of wet leaves, and then 20 degree temp drops. Good thing we have 2 brakes!
