946. Taking an extra surprise step in the snow
You can’t believe it! It actually is snowing! So you layer on 3 shirts, 2 pants, 2 thick socks, gloves, a scarf, glasses, a hoodie, boots, and a thick winter jacket! Good to go! So you get outside to enjoy the snow as in some areas like ours it’s just a rarity! So you figure why not walk to 7-11 it’s open cause you know they are open all the time kinda like Walmart, it just never seems to close!
So as you take steps towards the sidewalk things to be doing well! I got this down you think. So you just hobble along the snow as best as you can – hey what can I say it’s better than shoveling it! Anyhow, as you make your journey 2 short blocks to get some coffee you get to the cross walk. You cross the street carefully not to make sure you slide off on some black ice so you then search for the curb and sidewalk. Since the roads are rather covered in thick snow you make due with where you think the sidewalk might be located. You continue to look a bit as the snow just flurries by your face not making any of this better.
THERE! Found a spot, you jump on it a little bit, good continue the walk and then you take a step good …feels about safe and then you look over and notice the street lamp post is a bit close to your left isn’t the sidewalk to the left of it and as you turn your foot DROPS deep down a pocket of snow and sinks causing you to lose your footing and balance and topple in the snow. Great!!!! How nice!
Oh nice here comes a car, now how awful is that?!
