Slipping and sliding
Well, the snow festival is winding down and the city remains as it does every year at this time – a virtual ice-rink. It’s true that some days are warmer and slushier than others, but overall the roads, bridges and sidewalks are fairly treacherous. Not only are they slick with snow and ice – they’re narrow, as well. Lines on the road are barely visible (if at all) and two lanes are now actually one and a half. I haven’t had any problems driving about thus far, perhaps because of daily reminders like the one featured in this picture.
As busy as I know we all are, it’s worth the extra minute to go a little slower, excercise a bit more patience and yield when you might normally go first. The city is a crowded place – drive defensively so that it’s safe for all of us, yeah?
