Late yesterday afternoon a snow storm hit Toronto and before most of the city had a chance to shovel out from under the blizzard; the snow turned overnight into falling rain. This means the streets and sidewalks are under at least 2 inches of water in the shallow ends. A brisk 20 minute walk to work this morning turned into an ordeal of almost biblical proportions.
But I learned a new allegedly important fact about my body. My toes and feet will show relatively little sign of injury or harm - even if my socks and boots are submerged in ice cold water for at least 60 minutes in temperatures of 2°C.
I haven’t a clue as to what to do with my new found knowledge, but I take comfort in knowing - I can still walk and survive just about anything.
