Down for the Count

It’s been a hell of a week. The nasty cold I had last weekend (started on the day of the big snowstorm), turned into bouts of high fever, and finally I’m left with a problem with my lower back that made me miss two days from work. And I’m still in pain. So there you have it, the reason things have been quiet here, the reason I’m rather late on my email correspondence, and why I missed so many events this past week. I’m just hoping it’s not too serious, and that things get better soon.
