It’s treacherous out there. Warmer weather has turned what little snow we had on our driveway into glare ice. We usually have to go through this sometime during every winter, but this is the second time it has happened to us this winter.
I always store a couple of 5 gallon buckets full of sand and small gravel for just such events. I spread the the sand/gravel and also ashes from the wood stove on the sidewalks and driveway to create a bit of traction on the dangerously slippery ice. I will go out and do it when I get done with this blog.
Below is a cartoon I drew several years ago, about the condition.
