I grilled burgers for lunch this afternoon, with #1 daughter to keep me company. It's warmer - not far below freezing - so the snow and ice is melting in spots. #1 daughter found a slick spot, but I think I have her beat: My cane abruptly sank in an extra couple of inches at one point.
That was an interesting experience - particularly since I was holding a plate of frozen burger patties at the time.
I think I'm definitely back in the grill-each-weekend routine now: and loving it.
