In case you haven't seen the news today, Central Ohio is engulfed in ice. Even negotiating the glassy sidewalk to get to your car in this weather is a strategic affair, unless you have cleats, which I do not. I'd be braver about driving in it if I hadn't crashed my car a year ago in similar weather. Seeing a semi that jack-knifed on a neighborhood street doesn't boost my confidence either. "But you're from Vermont!" friends argue with me. "Yes," I humbly admit, "they kicked me out."
