Navigating the Snow

Navigating the Snow Tagged with:

I recently wondered aloud when driving home with my two kids one day about people who are homeless here in Chicago in this most recent string of below-freezing and below-average temperatures and snowfall for early December, even in Chicago. It’s been brutal for me personally, even with a heated home to go to every night.

The Challenges of Walking During Winter

Tagged with:

It’s Winter, so snow and ice is to be expected. I started my day early with a walk to a doctor’s appointment. I was bundled up with a hat, scarf and my winter boots. It was icy and wet and there were puddles of slush on the streets and near the sidewalks. I managed to walk with no trouble, and even glided through a portion of a sidewalk that hadn’t been cleared.  All I needed to do was to cross the street, and I would be home free. And then it happened. I knew it was going to happen! I fell in the middle of the street in a huge area of dirty, wet, slush.

I look forward to winter for many reasons. With winter comes the holiday season…full of love and joy. I love how beautiful snow can be and how much fun it can be to play in it or go ice skating outdoors. I even love the cold weather sometimes because it makes coming home that much more exciting. But, snow and ice present some real issues for everyone in regards to getting where you need to go.

Staying Active During the Winter Months

Staying Active During the Winter Months Tagged with:

Winter is fast approaching.  The days are getting shorter. I look outside at 5pm and wonder why it id dark?  During winter I often times find myself more tired and sluggish, as opposed to other times during the year when it is warm and there is more sunlight. Thus, since I feel tired and sluggish, it is easier for me to find excuses not to be active.
