Several years ago when it really had been snowing heavily the path on my street had turned into an uneven sheet of compacted snow and ice. The street also has a noticeable slope to it.
As I walked down the street with my girlfriend she commented:
“We look like a pair of old people!”
…and indeed we did, carefully shuffling along holding hands.
“This is us in thirty years.” I warned her.
“OK!” she said with a radiantly happy smile.
For the many of you that do not know this:
- On ice or snow walk with your toes turned slightly inward.
- Slow down a bit and you are less likely to slip.
