Default Snowing in Portland

And I'm warm inside with our gas fireplace going!

I brewed a mild last week, and bought ingredients for a golden strong which i brewed 2 days ago. Drinking the mild now and listening to Christmas music with the occasional of the airlock on the fermenter.

It's a good feeling

Its back up in the 70s here for today.

Sitting at my computer and occasionally checking the 17 gallons of Apfelwein chugging away in the closet.

Drinking some mead and contemplating what I want to do the rest of the day.

CHEERS!

We still have snow on the ground from a couple days ago here in Seattle, and its supposed to snow again.

On one hand, I'm excited, I love it when it snows.

On the other, I have all the grain for Orfy's Mild ground up and waiting, a yeast starter ready to pitch but I'm not quite sure if I want to stand outside in the 25 degree weather for 4 hours.

They keep saying the big one is heading our way. Anywhere from 6-24" is what the weather people are saying. Damn, talk about a wide range.

I'm about to go out to home depot and grab some concrete blocks for the back of my truck.

that is a bummer!

We are supposed to have Christmas up in Tacoma with my family, and my cousin from San Diego is supposed to fly up, hopefully it doesn't get TOO snowy here so we can still spend the holidays together.

But as for now I am enjoying the snow.

Snow in the Willamette valley = FREE ENTERTAINMENT saw a dually get stuck in a FRIGGING PARKINGLOT on sunday (first day of snow here). I mean come on - it was a bit slick but nothing like midwesterners/ east coasters deal with ALL THE TIME!

Waiting for another "automobile pinball" video like from a year or two ago (car sliding on hill - hit a bunch of other cars because they had no clue of how to drive in the snow)...

I remember seeing that on the news, it was 13th Ave wasn't it? Nice and hilly and slipping around and crap. Me and SWMBO've been driving around all day yesterday and I only saw a few douchebaggy drivers. I was pleasantly surprised.

I know it was a hilly area... not sure what st (I avoid portland when I can... though I'm probably interning there this summer)...

It has been suprising how few stupid moves I've seen this storm. My place is right on the edge of the storm system - my parents house had a decent amount of snow, about 1/2 way home there was no snow left on the freeway.

Funny what a little change in elevation and geography can do.
