Ya know what's more slippery than ice?

Wet ice.

It's hard out there for a pimp pedestrian.

yes... the ice is sucking... in a well lubricated, gravitational sort of way...
Other than that... the sun is nice, the temperature is decent... it would be a lovely february day.

I wish you good traction and some, er, ice and ibuprofen for your current injury.

Actually, I didn't fall, I'm just sore from the walking and nearly losing my footing constantly. And from shoveling the icy muck yesterday.

I actually got traction thingers for Xmas last year (these rubber thingers with studs on the bottom that you put over your boots) and, of course, I can't FIND them.

If wishes were horses...

It would be so cool if the good people of Somerville believed in putting sand on their sidewalks. Just saying.

More Ibuprophen in my future too.

Re: If wishes were horses...

Well, we do put our own salt & sand mix on our part of our Somerville sidewalk. And our neighbors in the one side also keep their sidewalk scrupulously clean.

Unfortunately, we are in a tiny friggin' minority.

Of all the things I miss about living back East, the ice and slush do not make the list. Be safe.

Heh. Yeah, it's pretty much not worth missing.

Oof, yeah. I've taken to comporting myself over the ice in not so much a walking, but a cross-country skiing, style. Less chance of a bad step, and fun!

I love doing that. Unfortunately, with badly shoveled, melted-then-frozen, half-heartedly salted sidewalk ice it's more of a penguin shuffle. My knees and hips are killin' me.
