Well, I'm "getting outta Dodge" (in my case, NJ)   just in time...a few hours before the flakes start falling I'll be on a plane to Los Angeles for a weekend gig.  The trip back Sunday should be interesting...hopefully it'll all be plowed out and over with...

Amen to that!

I enjoy it to a certain degree. Until my back is sore from moving snow.

I'm taking a half today, Ron.  I know your brewing an ESB today, I may do my Dortmunder today or wait until the snow is up to my a$$ tomorrow.;D  The generator is primed an ready, the snowblower as well and I have an Ofest and wee heavy on tap.  The pantry and freezer are full.  Bring it on! ;D

I wouldn't be surprised if this one dumps three feet on us.  The whole area will be shut down for a week.

Then the boys at the Capital better hurry . . there's only hours left to make a few more bad decisions.
Just brew it...

Are you kidding?  Those guys left town yesterday!  Seriously.

The new forecast, 20 to 28 inches.  It keeps going up!

Well I just mashed in my ESB and no flakes yet. They're saying it will start here at 4pm. I'll try to post some pics later.

I was thinking about buying bottled water and snow shovels and setting up a stand on the street corner.   :D

Started about 10 AM here, and about two inches on the ground so far. This weekend might kill me.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Include some homebrew in your stand and you'll really be in business.  ;)

Philly is down graded to five inches. No flakes here yet either. Still people are out there packed into the stores buying milk, bread and toilet paper.

So silly, when is everyone gonna realize that every time it snows, they didnt eat and drink so much bread and milk they wouldn't have to s*** so much.
Beer, its whats for dinner.
