So sorry to hear this Rich..... Hopefully the back is getting better and it
sounds like some surgery will be happening soon.  Let us know when you can how

We get it here a few times in early winter, and then again in the early
spring.  This past bunch of storms presented us with 3 episodes of "ice
fog", almost 30 inches of snow, and a couple of nasty ice storms. 
Global warming my a--.  Did, however manage to slip and fall down my
concrete front porch steps (5 of them) and suceeded in screwing up my
back and tearing the rotor cuff in my left shoulder.  Great winter so
far, huh???
