it was spitting freezing rain the last two nights we brewed this weekend. not bad, as usually it's ten below here in cleveland. i only had to wear a hoody, instead of the full body suit to keep from freezing. :mug:

I'm also in Va (Northern Va) and it is definitely a pain. Luckily I store everything in the basement where the temperature is surprisingly stable. Although it was very tough to get my temperature up enough for bottling.
