    Been there, done that. Luckily it was spring and I landed in a mulch pile.

    My employe was rushing to get ready, out the shop back door, twisted his knee, was out for three weeks, same for me here, out of the truck and on my a#$. Just hurt my pride. I always told the guys, slow and steady wins the race. Now none snow related injuries, lots of those.
