Default Brew day ruined by freezing and a blizzard warning. What to do?

Well, I was going to be working on my first all grain brew at a buddies house today but a spat of freezing rain blew through last night and a blizzard warning came into affect as well. Now that my day is ruined, I have no idea what to do.

So, what do you guys do when a brew day is a bust?

Move the operation indoors!

Well, I don't have anything to steep the grains I bought in, and it was for an AG batch, which I don't have the ability to do and I have no LME or DME laying around. However, when I was at the LBHS, I did find some tasty beer. That might be a good way to start the day.

Clean, organize, and plan future brews.

Whenever the weather runs afoul, move it to the garage or the shed...

Yeah! Bob is shoveling at the moment but we're only supposed to get about 12 inches here today so I think I'm going to head out to a friend's in a little while.

You Southerners let snow interfere too much with your life!
