We had 60 degree F temps too ... unfortunately they were immediately follwed by the 20s with extremely high winds. Oh. But I must sing the praises of the Amazing Ice Cleat Rubbers (not their real name) that I bought from QVC because the on air demo looked really, really good.

They work as well as they showed on TV. Better even, since I had a more complex task than dancing on a block of ice set at a slight incline.

The rain that fell Monday Night froze into a gigantic ice sheet on the sidewalks and parking lot on Tuesday morning and did not melt for Tuesday afternoon when I had to go to work.

The cleats dig well into the thick ice, but also provide good traction on the thin, infamous "black ice" that strikes fear into the hearts of ambulatory people everywhere.
