Winter Advice

Winter is here and since I haven't been in winter weather for several years, it is time to re-freshen the old advices for living in a cold climate.

Get some gloves. Think about how silly it would be being found lying unconscious with both hands in your pockets after slipping on an icy sidewalk. You need your hands to break the fall when you do the slip 'n' slide.

Don't eat yellow snow!

Actually, you should try to fall on anything but your hands if you'd like to avoid breaking your wrists!

Better your wrists than your skull I say.
Though I do tend to end up on my behind. Why does something that looks so funny when i happens to other people, hurt so much that it's not funny when it happens to yourself.
