Maybe not the best day to walk to work

Seriously.  Rather stupidly, I walked to work today, and despite wearing YakTrax, it took almost twice as long as normal, almost an hour and a half instead of the usual forty-five minutes, because I was making little penguin steps the whole way, because there was so much re-frozen ice beneath the layer of new-fallen snow.  Despite my best efforts, I broke traction over a dozen times, but managed to catch myself before I fell.  I don’t think I’ll walk home today, unless it gets a _lot_ warmer (or colder) this afternoon.
