Slip slidin’ away:

The side-walks this winter have excited much comment . . .to say that they have been dangerous would be to pass the matter over lightly, and to try and describe the sad experiences of some of our unwarned guests would be getting a little personal. . . However, Nature has come to avenge us, and just as we have been slipping for weeks, now in his turn Old Winter himself is fast slipping away.

Frozen feet:

The ice in the School Pond this year has averaged about thirty-six inches thick.  Under the S. P. S. rink, which is kept clear of snow, it must have been close to the record thickness of forty-six inches.
