Shoveling ever 0.1"? Only 250 more shovelings to go.

It was a big bag of Wtf. He's a normal dude too. I think there was more snow on the driveway after he shoveled than when he started. Lol

So the other day my wife came home and told me that her coworker told her that her husband kept waking her up during the night checking the storm and model runs. My wife told her I did the same thing. Who is that on here? Lol

OMG. It must be a fetish. My neighbor across the street will be out eleventy-billion times working the shovel until late Sunday for sure. I expect to be awakened half a dozen times during the night hearing the scrape of a shovel on the driveway

I wanted to toss my appreciation in with the rest of those thanking those who contribute to the value of this forum. I don't post often, as you can see by my post count, but have been here since that "other" forum went bust. I am not a met, or student, but I have learned a ton from you all. Thanks!

And as a side note, you have to try the Brussels sprouts at Graffiatos. They use pancetta, maple, yogurt and egg.

Why is ltrain posting the rpm - doesn't that violate some sort of forum rule?

Nope. I've done it for storms in the past for ****s and giggles. People need to lighten up lol.

Yup! I also have a brown ale brewed with white pine tips in case I want to change things up, but this IPA is phenomenal, if I do say so myself! :lol:

Seems we've got a bunch of homebrewers on here!

Both do indeed sound pretty damn tasty.

 

I've got a coffee porter that just got really good...think I'll have to pour one a bit. I wish I'd planned ahead and had supplies for a brew day tomorrow...would be fun to do a blizzard batch.

When I lived at my parent's house during PDII our one neighbor was like some of the people you all mention- dude was out every hour shoveling! The next morning his driveway was spotless, down to the asphalt. He'd do this for every storm. He was a Marine though so it was like some kind of mission to him  :D - very nice guy though.

First beer of the storm just cracked: Nelson Sauvin/Galaxy/Centennial IPA.

Who brews that?  Or homebrew?  Man I love me some hops!

 

Hah.  Just saw the answer on the previous page.  I work (part time) for a new Farmhouse Brewery in Walkersville, MD  (Barnwerk Brewing).  Hope we will be open soon.  Got a test batch of Cream Ale here for chugging this weekend.

Lol- my neighbor 3 doors down is shoveling his driveway.

That's a good idea. After the snow stops in an hour or two per the RPM, he'll be ahead of the curve.

 

Serious question:  anyone seeing any winds of consequence yet?  Pretty docile so far.

0.1" in the first hour.  These rates suck.  Cutting back expectations to 2-4", jackpots to 6". 

If you drink a Blizzard of Hops, rates tend to pick up.  I think that's what's holding us back here.   ;)  I have some in the fridge too. Might pull the trigger sooner rather than later.

Picked up some "Sweet Baby Jesus" porter. Haven't tried it before. Pretty tasty.

I don't go for dark beers, but i love chocolate and peanut butter.  SBJ is damn good, especially with dessert.

That sounds like an awesome beer for a snow day. Drool...

Next up for me is a Kölsch - probably brew it late next week. But a blizzard brewday would be pretty sweet!
