Get Home Safely!

Get Home Safely!

November 14, 2019

A few days ago at around 4 a.m., I heard a noise on the front stoop of the house that sounded louder than the usual masked suspects, raccoons.

I opened the door to find a freezing young woman on the staircase leading to my entrance. Freezing. At 4 a.m. At -20 C with wind chill. She was already hypothermic and completely disoriented.

A 911 (call) later and I had half of Whistler (emergency services) in the mud room taking care of her. Thanks, guys and gals. You rock.

People, don’t spend that last dollar on a drink. Save a $20 bill for a cab in a separate pocket. 

This girl was trying to get to Spring Creek. I live in Twin Lakes. Do the math.
