Please Help Me I'm Falling

The aforementioned weather hit hard. After two big days of melting, now this. Imagine where the water had pooled from melting and what it's like this morning....yup...icy.

I was cutting across the park (which needs better care in the wintertime, but that may be saved for a later rant). I was being super careful as even where the new snow was blowing was still quite icy. When I hit the driveway going into the park and went to turn, the bike said "see ya" and went flying out from under me. Luckily I felt it going and had time to do a less-than-graceful abandon ship sequence, but I still fell because of the ice itself. It was like sledding, minus the sled.

Only a dozen or so people seen it happen. I'm sure every one of them said "Look at the fool on his bike in this weather". One small set back in my Get Out the Bike campaign.

Good things you didn't pull a Kernel! Hope the only thing hurt was your pride.
