The temperatures are starting to get a little warmer here now—at least during the day. We’re starting to get above freezing. Maybe some of that snow on the sidewalks here in Covington, Kentucky will start to melt, but Covington is still snowy. I have a feeling it’s going to be a slow process with the melting.
The sidewalks here in Covington are, for the most part, still useless. I can’t walk on them and a lot of other people—older people—can’t either. We have to take it to the streets. The main streets here are mostly clear and safer than the sidewalks.
Walking on the street is trial and error. Most of us who have to do this have learned to stay off Madison Ave. because of the automobile traffic. Scott Blvd. has less traffic so that’s where most of us walk. We walk towards the traffic, of course.
My ventures out is mostly to Walgreens. My daughter took me grocery shopping last Monday and I stocked up. I mostly go to Walgreens to pick up things I forgot to put on my grocery list. I only go out every few days. Sometimes it’s a relief to know that I don’t have to walk those streets. Yep, it can be a little scary, but so far I haven’t encountered any pissed off drivers. They know that some of us older pedestrians are just doing what we have to do.
I’m ready for spring.
