Kate Almost Made Headlines!


"Woman Falls Off Second Story Porch Roof While Taking Early Morning Photos of Foreboding Sky." This could have been me!  Seeing a photo opportunity I stepped barefoot onto my slick rain-coated, rail-less porch roof to catch this view.  I started to slip and caught myself right at the edge of the roof, none-the-worse for wear, but now a bit more wary of weather conditions and proper foot attire!

  3. We daily photo bloggers are a dedicated bunch risking life and limb to get that great shot. About two years ago, I slipped and fell flat on my face in a puddle of water on a patio in my back yard. I was going out to take some rain shots and stepped on to the patio with the wrong kind of shoes and whoosh, down I went. The funny thing is how I held the camera up and out of the water to protect it but my clothes were quite a mess.

  9. I have the same problem as TexWisGirl. Odd.

    Second story porch without a rail? No, thank you! Next time wear a safety harness, Kate!

    1. The porch once had a sturdy wood railing, but it deteriorated and we never had it replaced. Since the kids are grown, we didn't feel we needed it since it is off a back bedroom and we seldom use it. Before we sell the house (which is going to be sooner than later as I want downsize) we will need to replace the railing.
