Ice storm; elderly parent who insists on driving in it; knots in neck. Straight up, steeped about 8 minutes. Could stand to take it intravenously.

I’m less worried about the driving than I am him putting a foot wrong with his cane and …. roads this far south are more wet than slick. We’ve lost some branches and every crash makes me cringe. Flashbacks to our ice storm week without power a few years back.

I wonder what my kids are saying about me?! You guys are a riot! Glad you care. I use a cane. It’s more important that older people learn not to look down all the time, wear proper shoes and have a good tip on the cane. If you don’t look up where you’re going…you can fall.
