Icy pavements

The trouble with the left-hand pavement as one goes down Dyers Hill is the layer of fallen leaves from the adjoining hazel hedge, which becomes first trodden, then sodden, then frozen. If I lived nearer (feeble excuse) I would sweep or shovel them up in October or November. I think I once volunteered to do this if anyone cared to join me, but nobody took the suggestion up.

I often grit  ( When home working ) the pavement along Dyers Hill using the grit bin at the junction of Church Lane , and the slope of the road.  Roads not looking good either - separate post made

I was slipping and sliding when I caught the bus this morning.   Very dangerous and had to walk in the road as this was less icy than the pavement.  OK in Witney.

The path on the left handside down to the Station is incredibly slippery. The path on the right is safer or I would recommend walking in the road.

I was about to post with the same warning. I nearly slipped twice outside my front door. On pavement and road and I had my sensible walking shoes on. Thin sheet of invisible ice. Never known it to be like it.

I turned round and went back in doors. Not worth the risk.

But you have to be able to get to the grit bins........

A morning for which the grit in the bins is made.

Take care if you go out this morning - some pavements are extremely slippery
