*Retired ABC News anchor Carole Simpson is on the mend after breaking bones in a nasty fall caused by Boston’s wicked weather.

Simpson took to Facebook to share a photo of herself in a wheelchair near a huge bank of snow. “Boston is paralyzed and I am disabled, both for the same reason,” she captioned the pic. “The worst winter ever.”

Simpson says she slipped on ice three weeks ago and underwent surgery to realign three bones that were broken in the fall. She says her short trip outside for “fresh air” was likely her last until Spring.

“I’m not coming out again until the daffodils do,” she said.
