Philly is down graded to five inches. No flakes here yet either.

Oh, there's at least one flake in Philly.  ;D


  They told us here in NE Ohio we would get about 6-10, then downgraded it to 2-4. Woke up to about 15. Gotta love the weatherman.

Is the pile of wood still there? I wish we'd get clobbered like that here in the Midwest. One last big one for the year. :D

It's about 1 pm, got a little over 2' so far.  The Dortmunder boil is almost over.  Made one pass with the snowblower so far.  My back is a little sore.  Need a beer.  The drifts are higher than waist deep.  Lugging my spent grains to the composter was a PITA.  Oh well, at least I'm brewing. ;D

The pile of wood is buried. It's a blizzard here now. We have over 20" now.  :o

We have over 2 feet here in Springfield, VA, and it's still coming down.  I'm not going to shovel until tomorrow unless the kid down the street with the snowblower wants to make some extra money!

Snow's done (I hope), driveway's clear (until the @#@! plow comes again), and the Dortmunder is in the fermenter cooling down to 48ish before pitching (I hit my numbers, yay) and I am beat.  Getting old blows ;).  Time to relax and have a homebrew (after I finish my hot chocolate).  I guess we got around 28" here in northern MD at the head of the bay.

Yep the snow has stopped here too. About 2 feet or so. I too just got done clearing the driveway and am beat. Time for some English IPA.  8)

We're having just the opposite effect from El Nino around here....much warmer and drier than usual.  Looking to be a hot, dry summer.
