A temporary cure for slippery surfaces

Yesterday’s slippery problem has been solved today, at least temporarily, by a blanket of new snow. This has stuck to the slippery bits and covered all the dirty old snow and ice with a layer of large, white, grippy snowflakes that ‘crump’ satisfyingly underfoot.

As a general rule, if the surface under your feet ‘crumps’, then you have at least some grip. It is when your foot makes no sound, on the ground that you have to start being careful.
