SEATTLE– A rare winter season storm that dumped a foot of snow on Seattle could not keep a 90- year-old female from her first appointment for the coronavirus vaccine.
Fran Goldman strolled six miles big salami to get her shot, The Seattle Times reports.
” I have actually been contacting us to get a consultation anywhere, every early morning, every afternoon and often I’ve been online in the evening,” Goldman said.
She lastly protected a slot for Sunday early morning, but Friday and Saturday a strong winter storm moved through the region, turning the city’s generally rainy streets into a winter season scene of snowdrifts.
Goldman dressed in fleece trousers and a short-sleeved t-shirt so that the nurse might get to her arm quickly. Over that, she layered a fleece zip-up, then a down coat, then a rain coat.
She then put on snow boots, got her strolling sticks and ventured onto the snowy streets.
” It was challenging going, it was challenging,” she informed the newspaper.
However Goldman made it to her consultation, just 5 minutes late.
Her daughter Ruth Goldman, who lives in Buffalo, New York, wasn’t shocked by her mother’s actions.
” We’re outside individuals,” she said. “We like being outdoors. I was out the other day at Lake Ontario with a wind chill of 6 degrees.”
