"Bracing" for it here in the frosty great white north as well. They expect about 12-16 inches here in Nova Scotia, but lots of wind=drifting. My back is toast right now, so the wife and I are game planning the shovelling for best and worse case scenarios.

My wife told our 5 year old daughter that "Daddy might not be able to shovel, so I will", to which my daughter said "Mommy, you're going to go outside in the snow?" and laughed for a solid 30 seconds.

Home brew Pilsner and a Stout/Porter ready to go; the wife's picking up a bottle or two of wine on the way home from work. Lots of propane and canned food if we need it.

Well right after it turned to snow at around 4 I took my daughter outside. When she got too cold, I switch her for the dog and headed to the woods for about 1/2 hour. I'm about to venture out to pick up the sushi we just ordered. So our anniversary plans are thoroughly trashed, but at least we'll still get to enjoy a nice dinner. How's it looking for everyone else?

Don't worry, there are plenty who love her too! She's just...extremely divisive somehow. I think it's fascinating. Oddly enough, in my very anecdotal experience it seems that signers who like Bloomberg don't like her, and vice versa. It's all very weird. But, with any luck she'll show up on TV again to keep the controversy going!

They closed all of the roads here at 4PM and we have about 3 inches of wet snow so far. It's snowing but it's not coming down very fast just yet.

I have also resolved to brew tomorrow blizzard be damned. I'm trying to think of a cool blizzard related name for the beer. Cheers, my blizzard brewing brother!

Just brewed today so that I can sit around and smell fermentation all day while locked inside. Woo!
