We woke up to a thawing, drippy world this morning. Ross started to put his sneakers on this morning, but I told him he was going to be slogging in slush today, so he'd better put his boots on. As we walked to his school, we skated on sidewalks where the compacted snow had condensed to ice. Ross slipped once, but he managed to catch himself with his hands, avoiding wet pants.
My boots are fairly waterproof, but they didn't withstand the onslaught today. I was kicking slush away from street drains, hoping to prevent flooded intersections when it started to rain. (And yes, I do like to play in puddles.)
