Walking In A Winter Wonderland

With the strange weather we’ve been having the past couple of weeks, we’ve been experiencing snow, ice, rain and everything in between.  This makes for unpredictable street and sidewalk conditions, and it is very easy to slip and fall, and possibly get injured, if you do not step up your orientation and mobility skills.  As I was walking home the other night on the icy sidewalks, I began to think about how different my cane techniques are in such weather.
