...you let the dogs out at 7.30am, and then need a trowel to chip frozen poo off the path when it is finally light enough to find it!

-4C/29F here last night, which is cold for us - much colder up in the hills, of course, where it dropped to -8C/17F. It is still well below freezing, with more sleet and snow on the way. I am very grateful for the kind neighbour who gritted all the paths and drives yesterday - I have done it myself in the past and it was a biggish job, even with a wheelbarrow!

Welcome to my winter, lol. Cleanup is easier when the dogs use the corners of the yard where leaves accumulate and flatten out from rain. Then I just pry up the top layer of frozen leaves.

Yes - at least it is a trowel and not a shovel!

Just got all the paths and drives clear and there was more sleet and snow last night - just enough to make a near invisible glaze of ice on all the surfaces. it was -10C/15F in the hills behind us last night, and still bitter out even at our lower altitude - I don't think I will be risking a walk for a few hours yet!

Definitely stay safe, please. I'll brave some cold and snow, but not ice!

When we get ice storms it is always very hard to get the car doors open. I hope your car is tucked into a garage!
