There is something that is 10x worse than black ice: Ice with a thin layer of water over it (thin enough that you don't know it's there until you are on your back).

I've encountered it twice - first time I was on my way to school, and it covered the sidewalk (all I remember was one minute I was upright, and the next I was on top of my backpack...This happened 3 times in about 6 feet distance).

The second time could have been nasty, if I landed the wrong way - I was trying to get up on a snowbank so that a car could pass, and my foot twisted on the ice, which sent me slamming the leg into the curb, and fell on top of the leg. Thought for sure I broke something, as I wasn't able to move for about 5 minutes. Thing that irked me the most is that the guy passing me lived next door, and he acted like he didn't see me fall.

Never underestimate ice is right - it might look pretty, but there's a heart full of evil in there.

Ha HA. You should see if you can find them in different colors and put them in strategic places throughout the house.

LOL!!!

Since moving to the States from OZ I learned the hard way how ice can break your knee cap, arm, damage a hip and tear a tendon or two.

Or I'm just old and clumsy now.

Respect the ice.
