Since our driveway is downhill to the street, they've saved me from falling and sliding down the drive numerous times.
Here they go on the boots at the 1st freeze - generally some bit of the rubber will break after a month or so mandating to keep a spare set on hand - and they get removed if/when the temp stays well above the frost line...in May ?!?
Personally (except for the falling parts !!) I'll enjoy all the cooler times I can get as those are my most mobile & healthiest times. (Glare ice included, unfortunately.)
