Traction on the ice

Post by jpmc on Sun Jan 10, 2010 8:36 am

Just a little bit of useless info for you


Not sure if anybody up your way knows about this but down here there is a age old secret to being able to walk on the icy pavements. Put socks over the top of your shoes and they will give you traction on the ice. Wink

Rumour has it more could be coming.

And also you don't need snow to have ice. Wet ground and cold temps do a good job and I'm sure you've still got those Crying or Very sad

Bugger NO

I've been hearing on the radio that hey are expecting 40+ over in Melbourne Australia today after an overnight low of 27. sunny

I'm glad it doesn't get that hot here. Low 30's is our warmest and even that can be to much sometimes. Only getting to about 18 here today. Clap


Not that I'm rubbing it in ROFL
