DR. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS DISCUSSES HOW TO AVOID SLIPS AND FALLS ON ICE

COSTCO SELLS AN INEXPENSIVE DEVICE CALLED 'SNOW TRAXS' WHICH ARE LESS THAN $20 AND FIT OVER YOUR SHOES OR BOOTS.  I BOUGHT SEVERAL PAIRS FOR MY DAD AND FATHER-IN-LAW 2 YEARS AGO AND THEY WORKED GREAT.  THESE ARE ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR SENIORS WHEN MOBILITY MAY BE AN ISSUE AND A FALL COULD EASILY LEAD TO A FRACTURED HIP DUE TO OSTEOPOROSIS.

I NEEDED SOME FOR MY HORSES THE LAST FEW DAYS WITH THE ICE STORM BUT UNFORTUNATELY THEY DON'T HAVE THEM.  IT WAS QUITE TREACHEROUS AND THEY WERE GOING A BIT CRAZY EVERY TIME A LARGE BRANCH FELL.  I HAVE A CREW WITH CHAINSAWS WORKING TODAY TO TRY TO CLEAN UP SOME OF THE MESS AT OUR FARM IN SCARBOROUGH.  IT LOOKS LIKE A WAR ZONE BUT LUCKILY NONE OF OUR BUILDINGS, BARN, SHEDS OR HOUSE WAS DAMAGED WHICH IS REALLY AMAZING ALL THINGS CONSIDERED.
