Yesterday was the warm day, and today is the something falling out of the sky day. Tomorrow will be the windy day. I did manage to get out for a walk with Skye yesterday. I’ve worn my Yak-trax virtually every day since sometime in December, and at the moment I’ve gone through 1.5 pairs of them. I’ve just ordered another pair that I hope will see me through the rest of this winter.
I started the winter with the pair from last winter, and one of them broke, so I got a second pair. Then a different one broke, leaving me with a mismatched pair. Then this morning I noticed the rubber on one of them had broken again. So this morning I ordered another pair, and will soon toss the broken one but will keep its mate as a spare. They last longer in winters where the ground is uniformly ice- or snow-covered. Bare patches are the worst.
