Remember this day so that when you start brewing a nice 9% Wee Heavy in July, you recall your motivation.

Ahhhh. A Wee Heavy in January would sure taste good right now.

It's in the low 30's here. Nowhere near MI temps, but we've had a number of cold days this winter.

I enjoy brewing when it's cooler out, I just hover over the kettle.

Windchill is for wimps! I didn't even read about the ****ing windchill. Windchill isn't "real", anyway. That's like saying, "well, it's hot outside, and it's humid, so it's more like 125 degrees". No, it's still 90 degrees, just humid. You know?


My thermometer only read -25, though, so I think the news lied about it being -27. I was actually looking for a hat this morning and then said **** it, I'll just go to work. The kids had a two hour delay going to school today- apparently diesel busses don't like -30 temps. I don't know how low it actually got last night- probably -35 or -40. I'm going to have to find some gloves and a hat if this **** keeps up.

Here's the good part- it's way too cold for clouds and for snow. So, we have plenty of bright sunshine.

Here's the best part- one year until I retire and go to Florida for January, February, and March. No desert (which I LOVE!) because one of us in this house needs fishing. I don't need fishing, I just like it. Not much fishing in Tuscon when I lived there!

For the better part of a week we've had a windchill warning (anywhere from 40 to 60 below) that expires the next day at noon, which is then pushed back until the next day. I think it finally expired today at noon!

I found it funny when the broadcasters at the inauguration were talking about how cold it was and how Obama had to go into his limo every 10 minutes to warm up. Gimme a break, it was 30 degrees outside! All I know is we've "beaten" Antarctica a few days this year for 'coldest place on the god forsaken planet'.

Well, how about on my way back north I stop by and bring some decent beer? I might have some good brews to bring back- I need something fun to do while in retirement. Might as well brew!
