it's all because of our CO2 emmisions :evil:
LOL, no, but seriusly, some pretty weird weather is happening around the globe this year. just hope it doesn't snow in July!
sorry to hear about your back, my dad had something simmilar, but from your description he was worse. one day he just couldn't get out of the bed, he spent a whole month in bed, more or less, he walked only to toilet and when walking-cripled! i suggest you to find a good kiropractic, if it wasn't for that kiropractic my dads rehabilitation would surelly take at least a year! but, he has to be GOOD, not some voo-doo "master"
hope you get better!
