I call his name.
Andy barely acknowledges me. “No treats, no interaction, bud!”
Two inches/ 5cm of new snow so far today. It looks like it barely will melt, creating a skating rink for me, before more snow (“blowing snow”) is predicted for early next week. Winter isn’t here yet, though the snow gives a fair impression of it. Andy had to verify it snowed using the snow I carried in on my feet. No, it wasn’t cleared around my parking spot, though that could have been taken care of while I was at dialysis. That snow is the origin of a couple slip ‘n slides onto my buttocks. If it isn’t cleared by my car, I have to step out of my car onto this ice-skating rink. I can take some care, of course, but I only need to step in the spot with snow over ice to fall to the ground!
Every winter I remember why I hate ice
Be careful out there. We are expecting our first snow ( up to 4 inches) Sunday.
We’re getting a major storm here this coming Tuesday.
Be careful. I’m always nervous of the ice.
Oh Doug ! Please be careful ! A fall on ice at any age can be bad but I’m guessing you are no Spring chicken (though younger than me I’m sure !) but with your other med issues – too much to worry about as is ! And we need to be around for our kitties !
I’m heading toward 75 next March. I agree, taking precautions is necessary.
Be careful dear Doug, Lovely Andy, beautiful as always. Thank you, have a nice and warm weekend, Love, nia
I have to be since Andy needs me!
Best Wishes for The New Year dear Doug and Lovely, Andy, much Love, nia
Same for you, nia! I hope the new apartment suits you well and you have quiet, nice neighbors for a change!
Prudence is mother of safety , Andy thinks .
Yes because :step+spot+snow+ ice +fall+ground = fall 🙂
That’s exactly how it is, eh!? I stay at home when conditions are poor. I didn’t used to be this careful and had some falls.
Been there, Done that while helping someone move. Definitely stay in as much as possible.
That’s exactly my strategy! I don’t go out when conditions are poor with the exception of dialysis.
This is very concerning, Doug, is there someone nearby that can assist you to your car and back you your home when you return? I would help you if I could! 🙏🏻
I don’t have anyone to help that way and I suspect two people could fall just as easily as one.
Neither do I, and you are right!
A friend’s husband and son salted the ice later in the day, and that did the trick! It was appreciated and unexpected.
Be real careful, Doug! One bad fall can start a hos of problems.
I am conscious of the potential hassles that could entail, thanks to a couple hospitalizations for other matters.
Yikes, early snow! Do be careful, Doug. I used to live where it snows often so I know how slippery it can be.
It is a major concern. I’ve tried to get a parking pad on my side of the lane. That would spare me exposure to the hazards I currently deal with.
Please be careful, Doug!
I definitely try!
Good luck with the snow
Ugh! Thanks! I am never ready for it.
that’s my nightmare…. ice covered with snow… please be careful…stay in bed ;O)
I will stay inside as much as possible.
