I'm seriously thinking of gathering some snow from each storm, melting it, and using the water for a brew. NOT!

We're up to 10.5 inches...thunder and lightning too...wind is howling...I think the worst is still yet to come

So, I just racked my first ever German Pils to secondary to get ready to lager it...seemed appropriate. Now to grab some barleywine and watch something on TV...or read...or hang out on HBT all night

My wife and son are in Bethel, CT while I'm stuck in Wilson, NC. I'd kill to be up there with them. So far, it seems everything in our yard is completely buried. I just hope they don't lose power since the house is all electric for heat.

I'm over in Norton. I thought I was imagining that until I saw the lightning. Crazy.

I have no idea how I made it through Airborne School at Ft. Benning during the summer.
Summers are hot and humid. I moved here in '92, right out of school, and it was a shocker. Took 2 summers to acclimate. Now, I don't even notice the midsummer heat. In fact, I get out there and love the way the warmth washes over me.

It was upper 70's today, dry heat. I was out fixing my sprinklers, barefoot and in shorts. I don't miss the NE at all. Not one iota.

We haven't had any real snowfall for two years! Psyched for this one...I work outside, so I got today off. Horray three day weekend!

I'll probably brew Sunday.

My friend lost power in Natick about an hour ago. I'm still hanging ok in Watertown. We are probably close to 10" or so. I'm gonna head out and try and get a head of the snow in an hour. The worst is going to happen after 12. The wind is really starting to pick up. I don't give a shi t how much snow we get, which is suppose to be around 24-30" I just hope we don't lose power. Take care everybody and be safe..

Our power is taking hits but is holding. I been shoveling out the door area so we can at least open the door tomorrow. Climbing out the bathroom window to fall into a 3' snowbank would not be a good start to the day tomorrow.
