When the streets are glazed over, you struggle to keep your balance and you tend to slip off your feet. Could I also say that my feet start 'sliding apart'? It basically looks like I'm about to do the splits but it's definitely not my intention. It happens too when people go ice-skating.

Thank you.


"Sliding apart" is perfect. By the way, you do a split, not the splits. I used to be able to drop to a split. I used to be able to put my palms on the floor with my knees locked. But I digress.
