Seasons change. And so do the hazards.
I don't know about you, but I'm definitely a summer person. Bright sunshine, rising temperatures, longer days, shorts, t-shirts, and flip-flops - come on, what's not to like?
Yes, the short-lived colors of autumn are sometimes pretty sensational, and a bulky sweater does feel good when the cooler air invades my space. It's pumpkin everything season, and the aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves delight our senses. Family gatherings, holiday celebrations - ok there's a lot I like.
Yet during those fun times, those colorful leaves are falling, wind driven icy rains can make walking and travel treacherous, and shorter daylight hours creates its own set of hazards.
So whether you love the change of season or not, we all need to be aware of things that require special attention.
