Recommended: YakTrax to Keep You Safe on Icy Sidewalks

Our companion email list, the Cleveland Park Listserv, is a treasure trove of recommendations. We want to share on All Life Is Local, on a periodic basis, the best recommendations that have been posted on the Cleveland Park Listserv. You'll be able to search All Life Is Local for "contractor," "plumber," "computer tech," "auto body shop" -- whatever you need. The search box, in case you have trouble finding it, is to the right.

Since you can't count on all homeowners, the city, or landlords to shovel the snow, you need a way to keep yourself safe when you encounter snow and ice in your way.  Here's what has worked for me: YakTrax. These pull on over your boots or shoes and give terrific traction. They're like tire chains for your feet. Great for walking the dog, coming home from work, taking a winter walk. You might want to keep a pair at home and a work, just in case you're caught off guard by a sudden winter storm. Just remember to take them off before you step inside onto your nice tile or wood floor, so that you don't scratch the floor.

Have a safe winter!
