We're in the freeze/thaw cycle for a few days. Temps above 30 during the day, melting the snow into puddles that freeze overnight. It makes my trips hauling water treacherous. It seems this winter I have come to realize how vulnerable Mom would be if I fell or otherwise injured myself while outside. It scares me to think about that.
So I invested in something to assist with traction. It just slips over my Sorels. They are slightly too big, the one kept slipping off my heel and making a worse tripping hazard.
I tied that sucker up with some baling twine. For good measure, I did them both.
