T.G.I.Frost????

Well I guess it's that time of year when the grass is covered with frost and if you keep your vehicle outside, you need to do some scraping!

Which brings up today's PSA for all you runner types.....

We all know how to dress for the darkness, so we illuminate our bodies like Christmas trees.

But what about those morning runs when the sun is shining bright and the birds are chirping but a knuckle headed driver was in too much of a rush to clear all of their vehicle windows?

I witnessed one of my neighbors do just that. SHE (it's always the ladies) backed out of her driveway with the driver side door open(she neglected to remove the frost from the driver side window. It took her several minutes to exit the sub-division because she couldn't see the traffic flow in both directions (remember her windows were still frosted over). She proceeded to make a right turn and almost collided with a kid on his bicycle! I observed all of this just from driving behind her.........

So once again, when you guys are out there getting in your physical activities be aware of your surroundings and make sure that you have eye contact with those oncoming drivers..

Have a great weekend.

Peace.......

As you know Ken, there are idiots everywhere. 60 seconds of scraping is worth killing someone, huh? Stupid.

Good point Ken. It's amazing how lazy and oblivious people can be. Play safe! And scrape your windows!

FYI, I scraped mine off this morning!!!

Crazy! That driver needs to get ready earlier so she doesn't have to be so lazy, crazy and dangerous-zy. I don't miss scraping windows!

That is terrible! She could have seriously injured someone. Scrape your windows or move south. We're still harvesting tomatoes like crazy.
