SNOW #4 - 2020-21 Season

 Fortunately, the prediction of a huge snow storm didn't quite materialize....we got about 2 inches on the ground.  As is often the case here in the mountains.....precipatation freezes on the roads, covered by the snow....dangerous for walking and driving.

So for the safety of our old bones, we donned our Yaktrax.....and grabbed our hiking sticks as we headed out for the dreaded morning 'forced march'.

Turns out the temperature overnight wasn't cold enough to allow accumulation on the paved roads, though much of our walk is not paved.
Dog and human (Yaktrax) signs on our almost clear roads.
We weren't the only ones out for a morning stroll.......

Good grief I have several sets of Yaktraks and well as well as Stabilicers. Haven't had to use them yet here. We had mostly rain at on 2500 ft. Stay safe.
