I did some thinking :-)
I did some thinking yesterday afternoon, yes it does happen 🙂 🙂 When I threw the sawdust and bark on the road in the early morning it never gave the tires especially much grip on the ice, it sort of slid away even if it did make the carpet to stay. So I was thinking, as I already has told You, that if I poured it out just before the melting ice froze again it should sort of stick on the ice and then give the tires some grip when I was making an attempt to drive to work this morning.
It worked!! I saw that my neighbor that was without spikes on his tires too was able to drive up that little slope yesterday evening. I had absolutely no problems at all to get away to work today 🙂 But all smaller roads was a mess and even though I started much earlier this morning I came later than usual to work. But it is better to be late than to never arrive at all.
But the road to the forest is so slippery that I didn´t dare take a walk with my dogs today. Pitch black outside and no one to hear me if I fall, not a good combination at all 🙂 So instead I spread the ashes from my stove on the road so I can get to my car tomorrow morning without any bigger risk of falling. Most of it blew away with the weak wind we´re having at the moment, but enough stayed on the road to make it less slippery.
Wolves has been seen not to far away from here today and I do hope they will take a walk to us this weekend. Beautiful animals and if I know that they are nearby I´ll put leashes on my boys. I´m probably the only one here that likes wolves and most people around thinks that I´m a bit strange in many ways but in particular when it comes to wolves 🙂 🙂 🙂 (and of course all plants I have and all seeds I sow is a bit strange here, but since they know that I have had a nursery/gardencentre they just smile 🙂 🙂 🙂 ).
It´s time for a cup of tea and a sandwich or two. I´ve already made my dinner for tomorrow at work so the rest of the evening will be relaxed and calm 🙂 Have a great day now!
