Falling down

So, today another new experience. Off to Skate the Lake in Portland, ON at -15 - dressed warmly and thank heavens for the numb hands and feet as they really felt not much...
Anyway, two incidents of falling down - just a sudden loss of balance and over I went, with no capability to prevent myself from spilling, to the back and the left. Fortunately the snow was soft, and I was able to figure out how to fish myself out in time, but my companion told me he thought it was just a regular loss of balance - but inside me I knew different - I suddenly had no ability to control my limbs.
Maybe just the cold, right?
