A few flurries fly and the whole of Forks seems on edge.  There were seven accidents today which brought people into the ER. All of that from a few snow flurries. That's not even mentioning how many incidents there were that did not involve injury. 

It snows, people panic. Why is that? I have never understood why and I suppose I just never will.  
I treated a few bruises, scrapes and a concussion. Someone slid into a cyclist. Lucky for him, the automobile was not moving very fast when it struck him. He has a few lacerations and a good bruise on his left thigh. He was wearing a helmet. It saved him from further injury.

A patient came in with a curious injury. He had been hiking  alone in the light snow fall off trail out in the rainforest. Lots of things wrong with that statement. 1. Off Trail. 2. Rainforest. 3. Snow 4. Winter Hiking.  5. Alone. 

No. No. No. No and absolutely NO. What are people thinking? Why do humans insist on doing these things? 
He slid down a small embankment and got his knee wedged between two roots. LUCKILY he had his cell phone with him and it did not get separated from him when he fell. He was able to call for help. Again... lucky. Most of the time there's barely even any good service here IN town, not to mention out in the rainforest.

People please, take care. DO NOT go hiking alone, do NOT do stupid things and for the love of all things holy, please ... wear the proper gear while cycling and hiking.
