Looks like it's pretty much over here.  I've only got about 5 or so inches in my driveway.  Some major drifting around the neighborhood though.

Might want to give the carboy a gentle swirl or two to get the yeast back up into suspension.  Glad it cooking again for you.  ;)

The temp is likely your main problem.  You've put the yeast to sleep.  Get the temp back up into the low-mid 60's and rouse the yeast and you should be fine.

I'm thinking about a stout and hoping its done by St. Paddy's Day.  But I'm confused, I don't know how to get the green in there?   ???  ;D

Put a green sticker on the bottle cap

Brewing a Blonde ale on Sunday night with the Pacman yeast I just got.  Kicked off the starter last night.

Cherry Wit.  It had a deep reddish hue to it.  And a little cherry flavor even survived the fermentation.

By the time they could reach you to sell you the snowblower you wouldn't need the snowblower anymore.

I swear, if they would have had a snowblower there I would have just slapped down the Amex and bought it even though I have no place to put it and probably wouldn't use it again for another five years.

If you'd have bought one, the snow would have turned tail and run and we'd end up with nothing.

Ha, probably true.  It was snowing pretty hard already when I would have had to make that decision.  If after I bought it the skies miraculously cleared and the stars started shining I would have counted it as a good purchase anyway.

I spent two hours at home depot waiting for the snow shovel fairy to arrive to replace the one I broke on Sunday with no luck.  Guess I'll be begging the neighbors to borrow one of theirs tomorrow.  I swear, if they would have had a snowblower there I would have just slapped down the Amex and bought it even though I have no place to put it and probably wouldn't use it again for another five years.

Did you pitch a whole smack pack?  Did you make a starter and weigh that?  I'm not sure what you mean by 2.1 oz of yeast.

Are you talking about myLHBS?  I just recently noticed that it existed and haven't had a chance to get down there yet.

Yep, that's the one.  Nice enough place, just not exactly easy for me to get to.

Yeah, not coming from Manassas.  I occasionally visit an office of ours down on Skyline Drive on Rt 7 which will take me right past it so I'll probably try to stop in next time I'm down there.

Like they say about real estate... location, location, location

Our LHBS is about 20 miles away which is about an hour with the stupid traffic around here.  Way too much easier to have stuff shipped to my door.

NWS just bumped us up to a warning for 10-20 inches on top of the 28 we've already gotten.  I have lots of food and beer at my house.  I may just wait for spring to melt everything this time.

Yep, you leave them in for the entire boil.
