The ridiculous snow around here is not alot of fun for the local businesses and Jerry Jones, but it saved me about 8 bucks on buying ice to cool my wort off on brew day! https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/hST9U-CxmTKubMHML3AoLchqOAE5WFAJZsxIUFsvE-A?feat=directlink
I just cooled a pot of chili in snow. It's convenient for sure.
Btw, by the looks of your coat the last cold weather you had was circa 1985.
I'm diggin the pink gloves too! You're gonna bring back magenta!
