Had a nasty moment today. I was carrying my ladder back to the van (I needed to get to 3 windows pole can't get to), when I put my foot on my the hose. The sole of my boot was wet and it slid along the hose about 2 foot. Completely lost my balance and ended up on the pavement with a clattering ladder. Fortunately I didn't do any property damage and only got slightly bruised knees. I've not come close to anything like that happening before and try to be aware of all eventualities. Just goes to show........... Lets be careful out there.
