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.
