Hubs Ice Skating in the Ditch


The day started with Hubs trying to free a few of us from the clutches of ice.

He tries to help free my cuz Kelly (watch her showing her husband, how he can go to work in this ice ) Funny....

While driving there on his tractor,  he is stranded and out of gas.   He began walking home on our ice covered road with ruts.  When it became solid ice  he lost his footing.

He then slides into the ditch.  The ditch was a small bowl of ice therefore he is trapped however he keeps struggling.

His brother drives by just in time and stopped exclaiming "What are you doing in the ditch?"  However because of the ice he cannot reach him so he throws him a rope.

Hubs pulls himself out of the ditch with that rope!  He skips walks home exhausted after his brother rescued him!

Fortunately the Good Samaritan brother did not walk on the other side of the road :)

We had a chuckle, but hubs has been aching??  Of course, it could have been worse.

What an adventure ! Not laughing matter. Anyway, "all's well that ends well" as they say. And you're right - it could have been worse.

Oh my. Oh my. OUCH. I'm sorry he is hurt. I'm glad he is SAFE. Get better SOON.

Oh, MY! What icy slip slidin'!! I watched your cousin fall, too funny since she didn't hurt herself. It wouldn't be funny if she did. I'm just glad you are all O.K., we are getting a frozen rain storm and ice tonight!

Trying to stand up (or do anything) on ice is tricky... Glad it all ended okay for you all...

We were hiking one winter on a narrow trail. We came upon an ice patch across the trail. There was nothing to hold onto --and if you slipped, you would go straight down the mountain. Needless to say, I put on my brakes and we turned around. There was no way I was going to try to cross that ice.

Hugs,
Betsy

I have a hard time not laughing at people watching them try to get around in icy conditions. I try to make sure that they are ok when they fall before I burst into laughter though!!

Glad to here your hubs is ok and was able to chuckle himself after all. :)

I am so glad your hubby is okay!! You are so right...it could have been so much worse.
I have to say though...the visual images did make me chuckle. Especially the rope part!! Ha!!

Glad to hear he's okay though!
