    A long time ago I took a pair of rubber pack boots to the tire store and had them shoot some studs in the soles.I had to pre-drill the holes for them, but they worked great.So If life gives you snow ,make studded snow boots(a northern take on the whole lemon/lemonade thing).

    I have a pair of leather boots that i put hex headed screws in the soles for the ice storms we have here. Without them it is almost impossible to walk on the ice, works great and cheap.:thumbsup: Jack

    Ooooh, by the way Perry, take the boots off before you put the screws in the soles, just in case your screws are to long.:lol: Jack

    Studded snow tires. The police and the mail carriers are the only ones allowed to use them in Michigan. My Dad modified an old screw driver and God only know how many of those carbide studs I pried out of snow tires. He got the tires cheap and my labor was (almost)free.

    How many of you'all remember Galoshes?

    Some consolation

    Another blast of winter.

    Perhaps you should console yourself with the thought that the bees will be having their season clock reset for the coming year.
    The gardeners will be relishing the idea of all those over-wintering pests being thinned and the soil being opened by the frost.

    What do the Africanized Honeybees and the Small Hive Beetles do in a cold climate ?

    If you have any surplus hob-nails, you can always use them as entrance reducer stops. - :smile:

    i did what jack and jb63 said, i too own a pair of 1000 denier leather boots. i was using chains or yak trax you can slip on and off the boot. the yak trax work really good. i had some extra hex studs leftover from my wading boots. so i drilled tiny holes, and used those studs on the soles, and they can be easily removed.

    the hard part is driving around in a vehicle with them on or going into the grocery store....work great on snow and ice but on slick surfaces.....you might fall on your keister :lol:

    we have another blast of winter here too perry, i have been shoveling for 3days, and today its snowing again...

    barbarian we don't have afb here in wisconsin, and i am also fortunate not to have shb.
