Ouch!  Hope you can get that back in shape before the weather
getss good enough to garden.  
We had a week of extremely cold weather, but very little snow-
not more than three inches.  Now it's been back up into the 40s
for a couple of days - and very gloomy and overcast.  I can stand
the cold weather better than the gloom - I find weather like this
most depressing.  Rain is predicted for this weekend.  My son
tell me it's not global warming - it's global weirding.

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???
