Sluggy's Giveway and Falling Down
The roads are still closed still. But, the temperature is up to 37F, so it will melt, but slowly.
Sluggy has another giveaway right HERE. It is "pamper yourself" box of goodies. I only remember there is chocolate.
When I went out to feed my hens, I slid all the way. My feet sink into snow and then I slide with arms outstretched and regain my balance. I managed to stifle squeals. At their pen, it appeared a person had made footprints and not in a place I walked yesterday. Hmmm, I cleared away snow on a bench, sitting to watch the hungry girls. They have no desire to come out of the pen.
On the way back to the house, I fell. I had just put the one egg down on a pile of snow so I could go get the mail without having to protect the egg. Well, after I fell, got all wet trying to get up, I just took the egg inside. I pulled a muscle in my side and broke a fingernail, but did not hurt my knees or noggin.
In 1993, during the blizzard, I fell from the top of the concrete steps to the bottom and slid out onto the ice. I lay there like a bug on its back, arms and feet in the air, flailing about to turn over. I crawled across the ice and up the steps. That memory will keep me indoors. The hens may get hungry, but I cannot hurt myself that badly again.
I am staying in today, no matter what is outside my door that interests me!
Have you fallen in this snow? Or, are you so sure-footed that you can stay upright?
