Update On Walking To Work
This morning was the chilliest walk to work yet. It was quite invigorating.
I didn't really expect my new one-mile walk to work to be warmer than my previous 58-mile drive, but I did have hopes that it would be considerably safer. After a couple months of doing it, though, I have my doubts.
Between the endless opportunities for slip-and-fall, the many street crossings with their attendant risk of motor vehicle vs. pedestrian contact, and the ever-present threat of urban avalanche and icefall, it seems that the daily expedition is full of its own hazards.
So, I decided I'd better start taking standard urban pedestrian-commuter precautions.
