A major increase in slip and fall injuries poured into the E.R. today after another few inches of snow hit the valley floors.

 

If you don't have to go outside, then don't.  If you do... don't lift your feet off the ground.  That works for me.  I treat it like ice skating.  Slow, very uncoordinated, and safe.

 

You should also have some I.D. and a cell phone on you at all times.  If you fall and end up unconscious, authorities will know who to contact.

 

The injuries pouring into Saint Alphonsus today ranged from broken bones to spinal injuries and head trauma.
