Sidewalk ice jam

Sidewalk ice jam
It got to about 20F yesterday, so I decided to tackle the sidewalk.  These are the bits that came up by chopping with an ice chipper, a a long handled implement with an 8 inch steel blade at the end.  It wasn't enough.  I needed to spread salt on what was left before I could finally get down to the concrete.  All this used to be snow before people walked on it.  I wasn't home to shovel during the storms...

This reminded me of an ice jam on the river.

  1. Brrrr... Looking at this reminds me of all the ice I used to have to scrape off the windows of my car back when I used to live in NYS. I'd never make it now, after 20 years here in Israel my blood has thinned - you'd never know I come from strong Catskill stock!
