Default Too much *#!%ing snow to brew!

My AG equipment will be here from Northern Brewer any day now, but there's too d*mn much snow to brew. My turkey fryer area (deck in back yard is buried halfway up the patio table and it's still coming down. Jeez! You'd think I lived in Wisconsin or some godforsaken place.

What? Er, oh yeah. I do live in Wisconsin. I guess there's a reason we have a reputation for consuming so much beer and brandy.

You're cruel. Snow, cold and stiff, blowing winds here. I'm hoping it dies down before tomorrow, when I plan to brew.

But be warned, I have seriously considered moving to Corpus when I retire!

I know what you mean, personally when I can't stand it anymore I get out a shovel and dig a trench from my door to my brew area. The plus side is it's a great wind screen!

Yeah, funny, me too... I was going to do my very first AG batch today, but too much snow and ice and arse-cold weather... Supposed to have some Chinook winds this weekend, though, so maybe I'll use some Chinook hops to go with.

I remember weather like that as a kid in northern Illinois. Trying to shovel the sidewalk when I had to throw it over my head to clear the drifts.

I'll take my 20 inches of snow on the ground and 30 degree temperatures. I know I'm crazy. My perfect world is snow and in the upper 20s Mid Nov - end of Feb. Then lower to middle 70s, a light breeze, and partly cloudy skies the rest of the year. Although I'd take hot and humid for a day if I was promised some good severe thunderstorms late in that day. Of course I need rain other than that, I'll take that in the during the overnight.

I'll stop my perfect world rambling now and have some homebrew b/c it's Friday. Or maybe me and SWMBO should head out for some FISH FRY tonight!

yeah i like the cold (sometimes....or at least I say I do) bc you can always get warmer....put on another sweater, build a bigger fire....

with the heat though there is only so much you can do before you just roasting..


I say all this but the fact is i've never even seen snow!
