Yes, I know it's Technology Tuesday, and yes, I realize this post is a bit of a departure from the norm, but I'm typing this with only one hand, since I broke my left elbow a week ago today. That makes typing a slow, painful process--so this post will be short.
I just want to put in a plug for a piece of modern engineering that would have helped me avoid slipping last week: Yak Trax. They slip over your sneakers and give your shoes extra traction. I even own a pair--I just wasn't wearing them
The lesson? Modern technology will only help you if you let it.
Stay safe out there, folks!
