Snow With A Cast
Carol shoveled a path to the tractor and plugged it in to warm up the engine. I put on snow pants and got them down over my air cast to keep most of the snow out of the cast. Pumped that cast up with air and went out and got the tractor started and got the snow moved. Had the fracture been to the opposite ankle I could not have done that as the controls are on the right side. The left side does not have any controls that require the use of a foot. Took an hour but we got the snow clear working together as a team and I did not have to get out of the tractor seat except once to clear the snow off the snow thrower.
We have had lots of practice working together and it all came together when we cleared the snow back. Minimized the snow for Carol to shovel and I didn't have to get off the tractor to shovel. Be glad when this ankle heals....
