That is a problem.

I guess in that case you just have to open a home brew and watch it snow.

No way. When it gets really ugly here, I BIAB a half size batch on the kitchen stove and chill it in the sink. I'm not giving up a brew day on account of weather.

Unless you're schlepping your 8-yr old to two different hockey rinks. Hockey doesn't cancel for bad weather! Would be nice to be home now brewing.

I'm out of everything to brew with except yeast, waiting on an order now. I'm thinking about going out to get some ginger root and brew up a batch of ginger beer.

Well, I didn't get anything brewed yesterday but I have a reasonable explanation. I had a slowly dying truck battery and I ended up having to buy a new battery and had to get that set with a top off charge. I didn't dare go too far in case I forgot and shut off my truck and left myself stranded.
