Puddles and ice usher March in

The city (the mid to north end, anyway) has attained one of its classic awful conditions: wide puddles at every corner, with most of the water over slabs of ice, so every step has to be taken with care. I thought it was just me being ultra careful crossing my own street (iced-up sidewalk, low berm of soggy, icy snow, then slabs of wet ice rutted by tires, stretching across to another low, wet, treacherous berm of icy snow, and then another iced-up sidewalk, and my front walk also in a frightful state) but I just went out to throw some salt around and watched my upstairs neighbour also taking his time picking his steps among the mess.

Be careful out there.
