No, it's just not worth the potential injury to me. I'll jog in slightly chillier weather and don't even necessarily mind a sudden summer downpour (my only concern then is my headphones and phone, but I can often zip them up in my fanny pack quickly). But truly subarctic windy cold, snow, and ice are a no go, so I haven't gone out for a walk or jog since the last time we had a random warm snap in early January, and I miss it so.

Today is sunny and the ice is actively melting, so I may just do an experimental walk around my neighborhood at long last.

Do you walk in icy conditions?
Oh. Hell. No.

I like to walk outside every day. We don’t get snow and icy conditions very often, but when we do it can be slippery as the temp hovers around freezing. I have little gizmos similar to these that attach to my hiking boots. They work great.

YakTrax didn't work for me, either. If anything the metal is more slippery on ice.

Nope! I didn't walk (voluntarily) on icy surfaces before my ankle break, and I'm most certainly not going to walk on ice or snow with an injury. Even after I'm completely healed, I doubt that I will knowingly walk on any slippery surface ever again. Not worth the risk!

Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world. *unknown*

LOL! Same. It's not worth it to risk an injury. My dogs don't even want to walk when it is icy.

Nope. Not worth the risk Worked my small town ER to much in the winter taking care of broken wrists and arms of people just trying to walk across a parking lot to risk walking in icy conditions.

Nope. As a certified klutz, I could be charged if I tried that.

My dad used to walk to work in his golf cleats when it was too icy to drive. Only happened a few times, but it seemed to be a decent solution.

In a wierd fluke, if I had seen this question yesterday, I'd have said I walk everyday no matter the conditions because my energetic terrier doesn't give me a choice.

HOWEVER, while walking said terrier this morning, I fell on the ice and broke my wrist. So from now on I don't care how antsy she gets. If it's icy I will be quoting Vintage VFer's Oh. Hell. No
