Default Irish Coffee

  • 2 oz. Irish Whiskey
  • 1.5 oz. Irish Cream
  • Coffe to fill cup

Not authentic I know, but highly effective in these frigid temps. I'm telling you people...water is dang near freezing outside.

Is this inclement weather for TX? It's quite mild here in the south of England, a little nip in the air but not too bad.

Yeah, we normally get a couple sub-freezing days a year...some years we never get any. That's here in the south...the north part of Baja Oklahoma can get pretty cold.

I know about Madison, WI...been there in february a couple of years ago. I went along to the kite festival, which was held on one of the smaller lakes (can't remember the name). It really freaked me out walking out on the frozen lake, especially as they had coned off a few areas that had broken through!

Yeah-- that's Lake Monona (acuatlly the 2nd largest in the county) they have Kite on Ice on.

At least one of those coned off areas is a warm water outlet from the local electric plant that uses lake water for cooling (cooling what? I dunno) and then cycles it back out to the lake-- it's warm even in winter in those places.

Already had several people fall through the ice-- been warmer than usual this fall/winter so the ice isn't 2 feet thick yet.

Lake Monona, yeah that's it! Isn't there also something about buildings in Madison that can't be higher than the city hall?

Or the state Capitol--- one of those 2. Can't tell them apart based on the hijinks going on inside.....


The rules were that you couldn't obstruct the view of the capitol, so tha tmore people could see and enjoy it. Since hte mid-90's they've been eroding that and more and more high rise office and condo buildings have been going up on the isthmus.

Related little known fact-- Wisconsin's capitol building is as tall as a state capitol is allowed to be, just a little shorter than the US capitol building.
