Scary

This morning was an icy one. Black ice to be more specific. If people did not watch the news here, they would have no idea that it was icy.

I stepped out onto the steps, and if I wasn't holding on I would have slipped for sure. 

Many students are gone today. I only hope that they are safe. I don't fear car accidents as much as I do falling, while walking. 

A fellow co-worker came in, and wasn't making sense. He said something about hitting his head, talked for a minute, and repeated what he said over and over again. I had no clue all this was going on because I was in class. His wife picked him up, took him to the ER, they did a CAT scan, and found out he has a concussion, and sent him home.

It's very important to watch out for black ice!

Have you ever had a concussion?

I am petrified of black ice. Last January 2014, I did not know at all we had black ice in my driveway and slipped and hit my head really hard. I ended up in the ER the whole day with at least 50 other people. It was a nightmare. But I did not have a concussion. Now I am extra careful in my driveway for sure.

Nope. Never had one of those, hope I never do. I hope your colleague didn't crack his pate.

I think for anyone who lives in a climate where it snows regularly, should be aware of black ice. It's kind of a no brainer, no?

I'm thankful to have never had to deal with black ice (probably b/c I'm a hermit), but I think I've had a concussion. :)

Yes. I had a concussion when I was in first grade. Wiped out on my bike pretty hard. It was not fun!

Oh wow - I hope your coworker heals soon!! I've never had a concussion - though most people who have met me would swear my mom dropped me on my head.

Hope your co-worker is okay. Black ice is NO JOKE... nor are concussions... (Marc had one after his train accident)

We have had a horrible icy winter here too. It has got to break soon.
