The paths looked very icy and slippery this morning. I was nervous about walking Rick so I googled ‘how to walk on ice’ and found an article.
The first thing it said was “Prepare to fall.” Uh-huh. Apart from saying that you should take small steps and walk like a penguin it wasn’t overly helpful. So I sent Paul out with Rick instead. He said the pavements weren’t at all slippery.
Storm Emma is supposed to be meeting the Beast from the East later this afternoon and dumping several tonnes of snow on the south west. I have a hospital appointment in Bath tomorrow that I have decided to cancel. I waited six weeks for the appointment. Now I have to wait another six weeks. Better that than ending up in an icy ditch.
