Look out, there is a sheet of ice under that snow. It fooled me. My coat would have protected me more if I did not have a change purse full of dimes and quarters in my pocket. The ice was like a hammer, the change purse like a nail being driven into my hip. I am positive there is no permanent injury but I am going to have a bruise and a sore spot. If my mom did that she would have a broken hip.
