Walking on ice
Just read a brilliant DIY idea for walking on ice. For boots that have thick rubber (lug) soles, not Sorel types, use small hex screws and screw them into the thickest part of the soles and heels. The hex screw with the slot in them apparently works best. Definitely not for walking in the house. We are expecting freezing rain so I know how I'll be fixing my boots. Another trick that works is to pull old wool worksocks over your shoes or boots. Or just wear the felt liners. Wool grabs the ice.
