Snow Chains for Shoes

Back in December we got some wet sloppy snow which mostly got walked on before people got around to trying to shovel. As a result, there was lots of icy, treacherous, packed snow on sidewalks. Now, I’m not a little old lady (yet) but I don’t want to fall on ice on my way to the bus stop, either–especially not while carrying my laptop back and forth to work! These things, which fit over shoes or boots, really work well! I can walk almost normally over packed snow, as long as the surface has a bit of texture–and the added confidence has been great! (Smooth ice is still pretty challenging…)
