This morning I needed to de-ice my car. So I turned the engine on to get the car warm, and the windscreen clear. Than I started scraping away. As I walked round the back of the car, I stepped on a patch of icy compacted snow. Uh-oh. No time to think about what was happening, suddenly I was lying in the snow! Ouch! I now have a very sore hip
But I also hit the side of my head on the bumper. Not hard, thankfully. But if it had been a bit harder, I could have ended up knocking myself out. And lying there until a neighbour found me. And I would have been right by the exhaust pipe! With the engine running!
So please, everyone, take care. Especially when stepping across your own tyre tracks that have now frozen over!
Have a warm safe day
