Falling as an Adult Sucks!

TLDR: Vermont Winter: 3 My Body: -3

This winter has been exceptionally bad for me and getting around. I have fallen twice on campus and once today in my driveway. Today was really bad. I went down on my knee and really thought I broke it. It still hurts.

Who would have thought that I would have to sprinkle wood chips on my driveway just to get traction? There is easily 2 inches of ice out there and I swear the Norwich Cadets could practice hockey on my driveway. I tried chipping it yesterday with a new ice breaker I bought at the local hardware store only to barely make a dent in it. I really think I need a propane ice melter. 

With another predicted 11+ inches of snow in the future, looks like I may need to buy one.
