Broke my hip.

Sorry for the repeat pic, but I just got home from the hospital. [4 days] Used my blower for seven homes, did a little hand shoveling, and slipped on ice between my garage and my back door. I now have three Titanium screws in my hip. 8-12 week recovery. I asked the doc if he got the screws from Home Depot to use with his Black & Decker drill. LOL Please be more careful than I was. Note the dry sidewalk a few houses behind me. They have hot water pipes embedded in the concrete with a separate boiler. It costs him $100.00 each storm.

Well that stinks! Ice under snow is the worst because you have no way of knowing it's there.

A little off-topic: the heating pipes you mention, are they under the whole driveway or just the sidewalk?

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

Sorry for you misfortune. Best wishes, and hope you have a speedy recovery. We have a doctor up on the mountain with a long, steep, S bendy drive that is heated (electric I think) sure works good always ice free, nice black asphalt. I assume he plows the real heavy dumps.
Cheers and best of luck to you.

Sorry to hear about your fall. Be sure to follow your doctors advice regarding medicine and exercise but don't push yourself to hard. Healing takes time.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Oh man that's the shits. I went for a flip last year and hit my noggin on pavement. All it takes is one second ,being in the wrong spot, even if you are aware of the surroundings. Hope you recover quickly. At least now you can watch all the news updates of your new president. Sorry about your luck.
