So with the freeze/sleet/snow thing that happened last week, I finally got a chance to break out the new toys.

Back when we had the bigger snow, I finally caved and bought both C and I a set of Kahtoolah Microspikes. They are basically a set of chains and spikes for your shoes that you slip on, and they increase your traction significantly.



They are not the cheapest things in the world, but they are built to last, and I'm happy to say that testing them out on the black ice in the parking lot at home proved successful. My footing was rock solid even when I was deliberately trying to slip.

I've heard mixed reviews about the YakTrax and the biggest complaint is that they don't seem to last very long. These, on the other hand, get great reviews, should last a long time, and have thus far been worth every penny.

Yay for big fluffy flakes! Not really sticking yet, but it's coming down pretty steady up here on the edge of Preston/Issaquah.
