19°F currently, high of 27°F today. Three feet on the ground, and there's supposed to be another 4-8" by the weekend. Days are beautiful, clear blue skies, and it snows almost every night. (We make our own weather.) Highs for the weekend are supposed to be right around freezing, so unless the snow is bad I'm going to get in my last homebrew for the season. The last time it was above freezing was Nov 15. So a really mild winter so far.

And no, I wouldn't trade it for Hawai'i.

Sounds like it's time to brew more beer.  :)

So, yeah, it's 29F now, but milk is $1.99 and gas is $2.89.

Paid $2.53 a gallon last Friday night, couldn't believe it.

Had some very cold weather and snow about a week ago.  Now we've settled into normal winter weather...highs in the mid 40s, lows in the mid 30s-low 40s, rainy.
Life begins at 60.....1.060, that is!

Today was a lot warmer than yesterday, and there's no wind yet.  It started out about 30F and should get close to 80F by sundown.  Not a cloud anywhere, it's damn nice outside today.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Gas was $3.19 last time I got gas.  Regular milk is $2.99 regularly, but you can find it cheaper sometimes.

Its windy frikin cold here! Not nearly as cold as its gonna get, but I am exposed on fifth story steel work today. I have my thermals and coveralls. Im still cold. I must be getting old.

Got gas for 2.60 in NJ today, I pay 6 dollars a gallon for milk but I get it at the farm raw; cream rises to the top and all.
Beer, its whats for dinner.

That certainly makes it all worth while!

Not rubbing it in.  When one lives 2000 miles from the nearest continent one has a tendency to lose track of what everyone else is up to.  Just curious.  It's hard to imagine having to give up brewing due to cold weather...

If I want snowy peaks I drive up Mauna Kea or Mauna Loa.  Their peaks (nearly 14,000 ft.) got down to 25°F last night. We'll be getting our first snow soon.

25F, light snow, a light dusting on the ground.  A little colder than normal for early Dec.

I could have done without waking up to 16F yesterday.  54F on Sunday and "feels like temp" of -1 yesterday.  Too early in Dec. for those temps.

At least everyone's allergies are finally done for the year, at least here in Des Moines.   ::)

Give up brewing because of cold weather?  Heck no!  This is when I do almost all my brewing.  It gets too dang hot in the summer here in Iowa to brew much of anything without temp control and my wife has told me fairly emphatically that I will not buy anymore refrigeration equipment.

I haven't found a day yet that was too cold to brew.   Don't ask about fuel efficiency though (Is 10lbs of propane too much for 5 gallons of beer?). ;D

This whole thread reminds me of a story.  I was in Petaluma, Cal trying to get directions from a local to a brewpub and they commented that it must be tough living in Florida what with all the hurricanes.  I replied that it's probably not much different than living with the constant threat of earthquakes, except that the hurricanes move a lot slower so you can get out of their way. 
Later I happened to walk back in to hear the same guy say, "what is it about these Florida guys?  Whenever you mention hurricanes they always say something about earthquakes."  Umm, you're living right on top of the S.A. fault, guy.
One of my favorite joys is to be brewing outside on a sunny Sunday afternoon in December, watching people on TV play football in a blizzard.  I never get enough of that.
I have no idea how much milk costs, but gas is $2.77.
