Welcome to winter!

Okay, first ice-caused wipeout of the season: Slid the scooter beside the security booth coming up the campus hill. Big sweep of ice around the corner, looked like water, guess it's colder than that. Thud at about 2 mph. Sore knee, but all else is well. Thank goodness for the thick leather jacket and gauntlets. Continued on my way, reminded to be wary for ice.

Oh, and it's freezing outside now. And snowing. Welcome to winter!

Edit: Ouch. Getting sore in one arm and shoulder now. Feh. Same shoulder I banged up a few weeks ago when I took a dive (assisted by a slipping stepping-stone) off a little hill on campus straight onto the road.

Edit2: Oooh, and the wrist is getting sore now. Hmm, I wonder if I can get Workman's Comp because it happened on campus? *g*
