Baptized in Bump*

I went for a walk this afternoon and had my first spill of the storm — first spill of any of the winter storms Portland's had so far this season. Went down on my left lower leg while walking on Foster near 82nd. I didn't break skin, but after walking for several more minutes I checked and saw, erm, I'd broken something under the skin. Hi, bump! Also hi, on-and-off icing.

It's getting better, the bump. And it was nice out (no wind! Unlike yesterday, when I didn't go out) and see pavement. We'll be above freezing for most of the week. I am really looking forward to that.

* (not, thank goodness, blood, is the point)

No broken leg? You're doing good! Glad the fall wasn't bad.

I know! I hope to avoid that experience.

I'm really looking forward to being able again to walk outside while reading, like I often do. Portland's a good place for that. Usually.
