In a Precarious position
They walk alone and they walk for miles. They read the ice, seeking signs of uncertainty. The ice is seductive. Underfoot, it seems almost alive. It breathes and shifts. It seems to have moods, changing from white to grey to black. The black ice is stronger but thinner, without bubbles. The white looks more solid but is often porous or slathered with icy slush.
