I Hate Snow!

Early yesterday morning before I got ready for work, I went out to shovel the snow off my deck and the steps. Everything went fine clearing off the deck, but as I was cleaning the steps, I took one step down and there must have been a patch of ice underneath the snow because I lost my footing and fell down the stairs. I am bruised and sore all down the right side of my body. Needless to say, I was moving kind of slow yesterday, and as the day went on, I became more and more sore. I suspect I will wake up even more sore today. Sadly, it snowed more last night, so I have even more snow I need to clear off. Shoveling snow is a never ending chore this time of year in Vermont. 

I love looking at snow and watching it drift down when it’s those big fluffy flakes, but I hate shoveling it off my porch and cleaning it off my car. It can be backbreaking work sometimes.

I hope you feel better. I did that same thing a month ago
and my right shoulder still hasn't healed. I'm 66.

LOL! Join the club as I did have such experiences in the past years and I'm more used to winter's tricks here.
My latest fall was more on a interior swimming pool when I visited one nice Asian man and we had nice time in the pool and the spa BUT the floor of that wonderful swimming pool was covered with very glossy ceramics.
What happened is that when I got out of the spa I slipped and fell on my lower back.

Luckily, I didn't suffer of any brousing or soaring back.

Beware of the ice hiding below fluffy snow.
Putting some salt on it can help to melt it.

Yup, that/s definitely one of the dangers of winter in these parts. I'm fairly cautious, and slips generally don't become falls.

I hope the discomfort goes away promptly and you're good as new.

Be careful also when getting out of the shower!
