I've never seen an ice storm in Colorado, but I grew up there and I assure
you they get heavy wet snows as well as some powder. I'm confused about
your statement that there were "crampons attached to his flex-foot, and no
foot shell or boot on the prosthesis." I thought flex-foot was a kind of
artificial foot, similar to the thing on my prosthesis. If there were no
foot on my prosthesis, I'd be walking on a pipe/ankle. ??????Margaret
