06:54 pm: Out! Damned Ice!
I was dizzy enough during my shower today that I had to get out and rest a bit. We'll see what today's labs show.

The ramp and the sidewalk to the van were clear because they get sun from between the buildings, so I put the recycling in the back of the van and tried to walk on the icy snow holding on to the van. After three steps, both feet were sliding, so I carefully went back to the sidewalk. I came inside and got my long-handled dustpan and went back and smacked the top of it into the ice to break it and then used the dustpan part to shove it into the striped area. I carefully turned the van around into a spot across the parking lot to get the ice off the windshield, which was easy, and I got as much from the top as I could, but at least none fell off while I was driving. When I got home, I parked as close to the other side of the spot as possible and it's likely to have a clear track tomorrow.

I put the recycling in our bins and turned back in to get the mail, which had my check. I pulled into a parking spot to write up the deposit and sign the check, and then headed carefully to the credit union where I deposited it. Then to Kaiser where the chair I use was occupied by an elderly woman so I sat out in the waiting room until someone got blood from her. I came straight home because Peapod will be delivering food between 4:30pm and 9:30pm and I actually got home about 4:40pm. They would have left a note, though, and they're rarely here this early.

And today, management had my spot, the one next to it, and the striped area all cleared and ice melt put down. I don't know if that's what caused the ice sheets to be taken off the sidewalks on our side of the parking lot, but they did that, too, and put down ice melt. Now, if they'd done that on Tuesday....
