    The cold wet mud and gravel (our front stoop put me out on mud as the grass is missing that is normally there to walk alongside the cars out to the road) got the better of me.. I made it to the neighbors driveway.. so less than a 10th of a mile, BUT I did it... and it didn't hurt, actually texture felt wonderful underfoot, it was the cold that killed me...
