A tale of two shoes

...well really, a tale of two pairs of shoes.

This morning's sky was full of gray and white - gray clouds, white flakes, light snow. Exercise, a good day for walking... I headed out, feet clad in their normal running shoes, crunching through snow. Surprisingly enough, it really wasn't slippery. It took about a quarter of a mile for me to realize that the snow and my shoes weren't a good match. There's an indentation in the heel that was quickly filling with snow; I felt like I was walking on snow balls.

Ah, a quick reverse, home again to switch to my hiking shoes. That was a big improvement, and I happily continued my waltz through the snowflakes.
