The conditions, I mean, not the Tai Chi(!) We're actually up to just below freezing today - which mean that some of the snow melted then froze, but other roads which hadn't been ploughed are deep soft snow and ruts. Apparently this is our coldest February for 83 years!
I slipped last year in dubbed spikes on a thin coat of snow over ice, broke my wrist. Treacherous conditions. Now I wear my microspikes in those circumstances.
