I have 2 left feet as it is, "tripping over invisible ants", as my husband likes to call it, so it's a no-brainer that I always find the hidden ice
patch, too. I've done the splits countless time, pulled several unintentional pratfalls of both the ass end & bellyflop-style variety, including
ending up flat on my back with my (thankfully very lightweight) snow thrower still in hand, also upside down. Granted that could have been a medical
emergency disaster, but the fact it's so lightweight and it went opposite of me when I fell probably was the big help there.
Oh, and that's just this winter for me so far. It's par for the course, I play Ice Rink Slip-N-Slide anywhere, and do it every year. I still wouldn't
move back south to have no wintery stuff, it's not worth the trade-off to me. Dry, cool northern summers (save for the one week it gets above 85, lol)
is what makes putting up with winter so well worth it for me.
