Princess, Don't know if I posted this somewhere else but during the holidays we had a very very warm spell. The snow was super soft. I went out around 10pm to round up the geese. I even put on my snow shoes. The snow was too soft and I still tripped and fell.
One snow shoe and boot came off. My jacket was very warm but I had on light pants. Pants were soaked, sock was soaked, could not bend properly to get my boot back on. Kept sinking in the snow and could not get up.
Laid there for awhile, laughed, then cried, then got angry and said, "Well, warm enough I'll survive til morning (hope) but ...." Didn't want to spend the night there! Finally started to roll, roll, roll til I reached ground that would allow me to get up.
Dragged my boot with me but the snow shoe stayed til the snow was hard enough for me to walk on again.
Final line is .... if the geese don't go into the shelter on the first attempt of no more than 10 feet out, well .... again may favourite saying... too bad, so sad, the coyotes will just get another one! I love my geese
- but love me (at least my kids do) more
