Ice Ice Baby

Today we got an ice storm. You may recall how I feel about snow. My thoughts on ice are even worse. But I'm not complaining. I don't have to drive to work. I just slap on my trusty YakTrax and walk to my office.

Have you seen these things? I hadn't until the end of last winter when I discovered them on QVC.


They might be one of the best inventions. Ever. They go with just about any shoe and are relatively inconspicuous. If you experience winter weather in any form, you must own these.

In my youth I fought any practical solutions to winter weather but now that I'm a little wiser and have less tolerance for the winter, I am a fan of anything that will help me cope with snow and ice.

I should get a shirt that says YakTrax Forever.


I'm only kidding. I think.

You gotta take a picture wearing them. Out in the snow of course...
I'm actually jealous of your snow. It's 70 degrees here today

I am impressed that you own something so sensible for winter! They really work? Maybe I need them so I won't wipe out so much!

My mother purchased these for me from QVC a couple of years ago. I banished them to the back of my closet, but maybe you're making me feel like it might be time to take them out. Do they work over heels? That might be a problem...

By the way, Kevin just came home from the store with a pair of these. I asked him if he's been reading your blog... he denies it, but the timing of his purchase seems a bit too coinsidental :)
