RE: weather/gardening

Yeah, Bonnie, ice is a bear. I bought these neat little things called
Yak-trax to wear on my shoes. Tried them out and ice is not a problem to
walk on at all. The hype that got me to try them was the fact that all
the Olympic staffers war them at the last winter olympics. Easy to walk
on and won't hurt carpet when you go inside with them on.
