In winter snow covers cut curbs and makes everything slippery. My manual chair is nearly useless in the snow and my power chair does well but often there’s no room on the sidewalk for me and the curbs are impassible. Work is doable because I take WheelTrans which runs 24/7 but when they ask that passengers take only emergency trips so that the system is free to serve those going to and from hospitals and treatment centres – it can be hard to think of work as being in the same category of need.
The difficulty is, they so often get it wrong. They predicted that today would be horrible for travel, I however decided to bet differently. I’m at work. Got here fine.
Having said that.
All the emotion and fuss that goes into making these kinds of decisions, the getting up at 3 to see peek out and see if travel is possible, is exhausting.
I got here fine.
Now, if they’d let me nap.
