    Because they feel if they've seen one wheelchair they've seen 'em all ... or because they have no idea of the weight of a pair of car batteries... or
    because I use fancy terms such as "Chakra"? I like your response, anyway. :-)

    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow... [chuckle]. Nanaimo seems to
    have got most of it, but we have a few inches. Here on the Wet Coast the stuff
    doesn't hang around for months as it does in other parts of the country... it's
    a novelty for us. And because we cleverly selected a wheelchair which was able
    to handle hills & rough terrain, it handles snow fairly well too. We could use
    some ideas, though, about attaching a snowplough in front of this rig. The one
    remaining problem is ground clearance... it doesn't do well in deep snow. :-))

    And HOW!!! If people only knew what they could do with less-than-fifty-bucks worth of computer and a BBS, Micro-Spend and the Internet wouldn't be *nearly* as popular. <Cha-G> Kevin even gates a few NGs, and grants me an email "soupgate" <term?>, so I only traipse off to community I-net connections about once a month.

    I could afford a dial-up connection easily enough, but with this BBS, I don't miss a direct connection NEARLY as much as I was expecting to. Besides, the ten dollars a month helps feed the cat, and he's more entertaining.

    I hear you. We've had similar problems with a few of our neighbours,
    and I'm not unaware of the difficulty of getting around... much of it caused by
    the thoughtlessness of other people! Nora's wheelchair can handle a few inches
    of new snow. It's good enough to take her home from wherever she happens to be
    when the stuff begins to fall. If there is an accumulation of twelve inches or
    so... as we had yesterday... I can glance out the window & say "We're not going
    anywhere for awhile." We know what we are up against. The real problem begins
    when slush accumulates at the intersections & freezes overnight, when the local
    stores don't bother cleaning up the gunk which falls off their awnings into the
    middle of the sidewalk, and when packed snow is quite treacherous. We could be
    more than halfway to our destination before we encounter these things.

    When it doesn't snow around here we have other problems... and again,
    I blame other people more than I blame Mother Nature. We get several inches of
    rain within a few days, for example, and all the sewers are plugged because the
    burning of leaves is now forbidden & the city work crews seem to be waiting for
    the last leaf to fall before they do their annual cleanup of same. On a number
    of occasions I've arrived at an intersection with Nora & found a raging torrent
    or, at the very least, a mud puddle large enough to hide the curb. She broke a
    front wheel under such conditions when the bottom of a ramp was invisible.

    In less inclement weather, people build sidewalks & forget to include
    ramps along their "detour routes". One of our friends also broke a front wheel
    in such a situation. The only alternative was to go six or eight blocks out of
    her way. She decided to risk using the curb, but her chair couldn't handle it.

    Oh... and here's another example. We should keep cars off the road &
    take the bus in this weather, right?? In theory it seems like a good idea. In
    practice it doesn't always work as planned. We heard on the news that only 20%
    of the Vancouver buses were operational this morning. The guy who was supposed
    to authorize someone else to de-ice the trolley wires misread a memo... (sigh).



    We could use some ideas, though, about attaching a snowplough
    in front of this rig.

    I wonder if they make chains and skis for chairs. <L>


    Probably not. But you've just given me another idea. What about the
    ships which break through the ice up North? How do they do it?? Might come in
    handy to be able to do that with the frozen slush at the street corner.... ;-)

    Hello Ardith,

    AH> I'm sure it's not easy when you also have to work for

    Sadly I lost my job this year. I've been trying to
    scrape by on part-time work from the company that hosted my internship, but I've reached the point where I need to find a real job very soon.

    AH> Ah... are you a teacher?

    No, I'm a middle-aged part-time college student. Almost
    done with this degree and although I have the next programme picked out, I have
    no way of paying for it and I have doubts about tying myself to this area for another five years.

    The day I read this - some two weeks prior to my writing, for reasons we've covered elsewhere [-; we had an unusually precipitous December. (The third largest on record.) I saw an unescorted fella in a powered chair spinning his wheels. What brought me to his attention, was a big burly driver at the adjacent light jump out of his vehicle to help. Through most of Christmas week - belated well wishes BTW - I had two and a half vehicles fail me, up to and including today. The refusals to boost me, I can count on one hand, and usually came from two women in a car, or from people in new vehicles that supposedly knew how buried their electrical connections are. The funniest story there, was on Christmas day when two fellas stopped in a brand new Saturn and popped their hood expecting to be good (new?) Canadian citizens. After looking around for ten seconds, I was teasing the driver that, "I *think* I can see a red wire up there, but I'd need a screwdriver to get to it." I sent them on their way with my warmest Christmas wishes, and the best Happy New Year I could. Little did I expect the next arse to park in the very same spot, and refuse to move so someone *would* be *able* to boost me. Just as well, as I was overdue to call it a wash and take two Aspirin and a hot toddie anyway.


    When it doesn't snow around here we have other problems...
    and again, I blame other people more than I blame Mother
    Nature. We get several inches of rain within a few days,
    for example, and all the sewers are plugged because the
    burning of leaves is now forbidden & the city work crews
    seem to be waiting for the last leaf to fall before they do
    their annual cleanup of same. On a number of occasions
    I've arrived at an intersection with Nora & found a raging
    torrent or, at the very least, a mud puddle large enough to
    hide the curb. She broke a front wheel under such
    conditions when the bottom of a ramp was invisible.

    I started watching a new reality series on the tube lately, called Ax Men. It's about Oregon forest harvesters, where one episode covered an unusual storm there they were weathering. "Mother nature doesn't play favorites." was a sage bit of wisdom from one of the experienced cutters.

    I think what you are referring to with your puddle troubles, is called cultural lag. If we didn't have pavement, we wouldn't have the water runoff issues, but we wouldn't have as well maintained a place for so many vehicles. So, we have unions saying, "I won't do that for free." Government is in place to say, "We have a mandate to pay you as little as possible to do that." and management who says, "They don't pay me enough for this." Well, the ones with a conscience would say that I imagine.


    In less inclement weather, people build sidewalks
    & forget to include ramps along their "detour routes". One
    of our friends also broke a front wheel in such a
    situation. The only alternative was to go six or eight
    blocks out of her way. She decided to risk using the curb,
    but her chair couldn't handle it.


    "They don't pay us enough to build temporary ramps, or it would have been factored into the work order." )-:

    Oh... and here's another example. We should keep
    cars off the road & take the bus in this weather, right??

    Where's the fun in 4WD? <G>

    In theory it seems like a good idea. In practice it
    doesn't always work as planned. We heard on the news that
    only 20% of the Vancouver buses were operational this
    morning. The guy who was supposed to authorize someone
    else to de-ice the trolley wires misread a memo... (sigh).

    That's a stalwart excuse.

    We could use some ideas, though, about attaching a snowplough
    I wonder if they make chains and skis for chairs. <L>


    Probably not. But you've just given me another
    idea. What about the ships which break through the ice up
    North? How do they do it?? Might come in handy to be able
    to do that with the frozen slush at the street corner....
    ;-)


    Horse power and tonnage... Enough of those, and your could make your own temporary chair ramp. Inclement or not! <chuckle>
