Thank you Mr. Weatherman!

So, this morning I needed to go the Post Office and the grocery store.
We had a bit of snow overnight, so I started up my car and when to shovel the snow off the driveway and sidewalk. EEEK!!! It was so icy, I almost fell a kazillion times!
As I may have mentioned , I don't have my snow tires on yet.
What to do?
First thing is turn off the car! I ain't driving today.
Then, back into the house and dug into the winter basket for a scarf, mittens and toque.
I also noticed the ice grippers for the bottom of my shoes that I bought last year and never wore! On they went, and out I went.
It is a glorious day! About -2, and more importantly, no wind!
I had a wonderful walk, and by the time I headed home from the store, my scarf was off, my mittens were off, and the ice grippers worked like a charm.
So, thank you Mr. Weatherman, for getting me off my butt and out for a walk!
The End.

It sounds delightful. We don't usually get temps like that...heck my boys think hoodies = jackets, but I do remember those days from when I lived back east.

Yay for ice-grippers! I bought a pair for my dad last year but I'm not sure he's used them much. I'll have to remind him that he has them this year. lol.

Oh gosh, just as well you needed to clear the drive and didn't just drive off! How come you can't get your tyres changed until mid November?
