    Instantly applying that snow pack should have helped.

    Daughter wanted to go sledding w/a friend the other day but that fell through. Turns out her friend smacked into a tree and broke her wrist, banged up her knees, and got a lump on her noggin.

    Yeah. She and the wife got into a snit earlier that day and I could see the daughter pouting at not being allowed to go. Mothers know best?

    Better install one of these on your sled, Ms. L. :D

    We had a killer tobaggan one year. I was a grown woman...my mom bought it as a christmas present for my two very young boys but it was more appropriate for the adults, and we immediately identified that. Me, my husband, my brother, his wife and the boys...we spent weeks on that thing.

    So besides the relatively straight forward head hitting a bank let's add:

    Launching into a frozen ditch, hitting hidden piles of bricks at about 35 mph, and frostbite from throwing buckets of water down the slope in -15 weather, and failing to change your gloves out for dry ones before spending another couple of hours drinking and sledding madly down the steep ravine and street.....

    It's a miracle any human makes it to 30.
