Hip fracture season has begun early this year, late November. Fifty degrees, rain, temperature plummets, freezing rain, puddles freeze, light snow covers the newly formed black ice, Passerby loses traction but catches themselves just in time. Every so often passerby caught completely off guard falls and fractures. Leading to a long rehab or an operation plus long rehab or its the final nail in the coffin.
Especially treacherous since winter has come upon us early. The patches are few and far between silently waiting for their victims like something out of Final Destination. Persons of a certain age and with the right risk factors should just stay home on a day like today. Can you spot the black ice?
