goodbye snow, hello ice

Right now, the atmospheric conditions are perfect for sleet (ice), which makes the streets and sidewalks slippery. I had to walk on the new layer of soft ice built on the left over frozen snow in order not to fall. In a place like Queens County, where sanitation and other city trucks clean the snow late, this means trouble and high probability of falling flat on one's ass.
