I was all excited to get my AHS Magic hat 9 clone today. I have the day off, there is 13 inches of snow outside, I am not going anywhere and it is a great chiller . Well I go to see if my shipment was put on the truck today as expected and ups says because of elements beyond their control they can not deliver it today! I even shoveled a path for the UPS man...
Bastards!

There are hills in Connecticut? But DAMN 350 pounds of grain how much beer are you making!

Where are you from? I went to school in Rochester, so if you're anywhere near I-90, I probably know how far it is from here.

Maybe you should have ordered some "Global Warming" from Al Gore!

Okay, I think I drove through there once, getting onto I-81. Generally just a drive-through area, though. About 2-2.5 hours from here. Other than the owner of the LHBS (who is mostly into wine), I haven't really found any other brewers in the area.
