I don't mind the snow as I feel I can get a lot more traction, but when we 
get those early snowfalls that are only a half of inch or so that get packed 
and are really slippery, or the melting snows in the later spring and then 
the re-freezing of the melt, that's when I too am so super-cautious.  All 
three of my guides have been wonderful in alerting me of ice which is really 
amazing.  I am just going to assume though that it is in part just being out 
in the conditions on a regular basis which gets them adjusted to the 
conditions, but also the unwritten contractual agreement we have  that if I 
go down, the go down with me!  It really brings their attention to the 
hidden barrier that they may not have been so aware of, but are now more 
alert as to what to look for.  It also helps to use ice-creepers during 
these slipperier conditions!  I have 2 sets where one is basically for 
ice-fishing with football like cleats on them while the other has smaller 
teeth that are easier to use on a sidewalk.  Either way, I chose to live 
here and living with these conditions is part of the excitement of seasonal 
change!  However, I do look so forward to 80 and even 90 degree temps!  I 
guess there is just something more exciting about brushing a mosquito away 
from my face versus a snowflake.  And of course, the real reason is that 
beer is much better in the summer than the winter!  Cheers!
