Now that is back to single digits F, time to share my favorite ice-related infograpic.

@mattcropp I've never walked on ice, and I'd like to know if this is real or a gag to try and make people look silly.

@GenaTrius @mattcropp it's absolutely real. Unless you've got spiked ice boots that can grip into anything you should walk stiff legged with your legs close together. Basically like a penguin.

On icey days wegmans even puts a sign in the parking lot to walk like a penguin to not slip lol

@radicalrobit @GenaTrius We recently had a 24 hour period where it went from -5F to 45F then back below freezing right after getting a foot and a half of snow.

Was very glad I owned yak trax and had an extra 5 gallon bucket of salt in the garage...
