It took a few hours.
It has been so warm that most of the snow now is gone 🙂 There is however some ice left, especially where I have my gate towards the road. I noticed that this morning when I was going to work.
The ditch that is supposed to take all the melted water has seen better days, it got a bit destroyed when they put down the sewer system last year. So I could see some ice by the gate and also a lot of water.
I managed to get down to the gate without slipping to my big surprise but I stood on the wrong side of the gate, the hasp to open it up was on the other side. So I took one step out into the ice and water. I felt how my foot lowly started to slide away all by itself and when I tried to stand more on my other foot it too started to wander away by its own accord.
Everything happened in slow motion, I desperately tried to get a good grip on the gate but nothing helped as I slowly, slowly slid down into the water back first 🙂 It was so ridiculous that I just lay there on my back in the water laughing out loud as the water, rather cold I can tell You, worked its way in towards my body 🙂 🙂 🙂 I had to roll around to be able to get up while the water was running down my legs.
I was thinking about going inside again and change clothes but decided that I just as well could drive to work because who knows if this had happened again the next time I reached the gate? It took a few hours but I did finally dry up 🙂
It is time for something to eat and some warm cocoa I think.
Have a great day!
