Specialized All Conditions Tire review

I am currently riding a 700x28 Specialized All Conditions tire on my front wheel and last week I took a close inspection to see how it was holding up. It's currently full of a zillion tiny holes, from I know not what. I do have glass on my route because I ride in traffic but I've never seen tire tread to this. On the other hand I haven't had any flats because of it either. I haven't replaced the tire and probably won't until it gets closer to failure. B
But this tire bears watching.

Cherry Blossom Ride

A beautiful tree in my own neighborhood, just as I'm leaving it.

This spray of daffodills are on Mercer Island just opposite the old Inn.

Capitol Hill looking back at the first block of Cherry trees

The next block, the trees are on both sides of the street.

The front of the girl's school up on Capitol Hill.

These trees are marked "protected" from the construction of that apartment building and it looks like they are going to make it just fine.

This apartment complex is two blocks from my office. The trees are surrounding a parking lot and then continue on the next block. You don't have to go to the other Washington to see the cherry trees but you do if you want warm weather! It was only 40F on the way in today.
