Forget it, even if he got there I wasnt there. Tried to get there today, stupid. That neighborhood is impassable. I finally got there to find out the streets are not even plowed, and people are inadvertently building giant walls of ice and snow as they shovel their cars out. Ya got crash through them. I got stuck twice before I got to the shop and there is about ten feet of snow up against my door and parking lot not yet plowed. I dont even know why I tried, I guess it is because I feel challenged and can brave through it. .
Beer, its whats for dinner.

That stinks.  >:(

Are you clearing the snow away from the door to get in or using the side door?

I would have turned around and went home.

Shazbot!

Oh I did just go home. Well the loading dock door is buried under a ten foot drift. The other side is buried by a five foot drift. I managed to get in that door but only to get a shovel cause I was stuck just outside. Nowhere to park so I just came home.

We've been getting snow for a couple of days now, just quick flurries from lake effect I'm guessing.  Its 34 degrees outside right now.   ;D

No more snow, I'm running out of beer and i need a weekend to brew.  Between sickness and the mountain of snow I haven't brewed in 2 months.  I'm brewing regardless of whats happening this weekend.

So after living through the infamous Ice Storm 2008 without power for 6 days, I thought to myself I'll probably never go through something like that again.  WRONG!

Enter "Wind Storm 2010"  Lost power on Thurday night and got it back early Sunday morning ( 53 hours ).  Parts of NH look like a war zone with trees all over the place.

But this time, I had a generator, so up yours mother nature!!!

Anyone else feel my pain?

This will be a winter for the history books. We have had almost 6 feet of snow for the year which is a record for Delaware by the way. I'm ready for spring.

Bring spring!
