|practice putting green, notice the ski tracks of ice|

Some of these puddles happen even in the warmer seasons but rain on frozen ground really moves and collects in some interesting places. Much of the ice shown in these pictures melted by the end of the day but I hope I illustrated the issues faced with winter traffic. The compacted snow can turn to ice either in a footprint or track from skiing or driving. Any ice has the potential for winter kill and some of our worst winter kill came from large puddles and the freeze thaw cycles on the edge or the entire saturated area. Lets keep our fingers crossed.
