65 degrees

After a week of everything being frozen the town finally melted today.
Well...almost.
As I rushed to class, I discovered a truly rare and wondrous thing.
I found what must be the last patch of ice in Southeastern Virginia.

To wit....



An X-Ray turned up what they initially thought was a tumor or a cyst...which caused me much vexation. However, a subsequent CT scan seemed to indicate that there is a bone fragment caught in the ankle joint. I'll know something after I see the orthopedist tomorrow or Wednesday....I'm hoping for tomorrow, because today's weather was but a one day reprieve....it's supposed to start snowing tomorrow and carry on through Wednesday with accumilations of 6-8 inches.

1 There appears to be a misplaced chestburster trying to escape from your big toe.  Just thought you should know that.

2 65 degrees and the town melted?
Sounds like the weather we've been having in Australia!
P.S.  Ouch. Get well soon!

3 If it makes you feel any better, it's 65 here now...

4 We got above 0°F for the first time in 31 hours just a minute ago!  It didn't last long, and we're going back down to -10°F tonight, but for one brief, shining moment...

...it was still frickin' cold.

5 I thought ducks were migratory.  Or are you only pretending to be a duck?

6 OK we do not need the comments section here to become a nest of quack truthers and duck denialists.

Ah, yes. Those patches of slippery that make life special. The sad thing is that you weren't even doing anything stupid.* Eat a lot of protein and calcium to make your muscles and bones happy, after they get the Fragment taken care of.

* Unlike me, who almost got to church after an icestorm, and collected my first broken bone thereby.
