We had an icestorm last night, yesterday. Since I can, I took off work today and will work Saturday instead. I had almost forgotten about the Yaktrax I purchased nearly 2 years ago. With the delusions of reference that we all often seem to have, we haven't much of a snow or ice since then and I hadn't even taken them out of the box.
Of course, despite the icestorm, the dogs still wanted to walk this morning. Laurie had taken the 2 pair of Yaktrax out yesterday and I put on my boots and took the Yaktrax outside and easily put them on my shoes, probably could have done it with gloves on. Not a hint of slipping on the ice covered stairs, driveway or sidewalk. If only, I could have them on my bike.
