I am more of  B & B fan, but wanted to try the cold brew coffee version of Jager, and it is quite a bit cheaper. 

It is actually very good.. the  original is a bit too licorice heavy for me.

Where are all the happy hour drinkers?

Decided to do a shot of Jager cold brew coffee, right out of the freezer ofc. Normally only drink digestifs as a night cap, but felt like starting off with a little bang.

 

Resting the liver while the weather is crappy

Lol. Its all relative.

Other than the wind, I will take this weather over the 85-90 we could be easily be dealing with at this time. Also wouldn't mind a bit of rain. Dw, a stretch of 70s and low 80s is on the way, with some humidity. I would be totally content if we don't sniff 90 for another month.

Terrible spring weather. So hard to get outside and enjoy when it’s windy and chilly

I’m trying to cut back significantly lol. Body just can’t keep up. But I have a beer pick up tomorrow at crooked crab brewery in Odenton. Double cherry pie. Supposedly brewed with cherries, vanilla, graham crackers and lactose. 7% so it’s on the imperial sour side of things

The wind is a bit much. I thought today would have been perfect with the same temps and maybe a 15 mph breeze. I know people have these visions of days and days in the 70s with low dew points in May, but we don't do perfect here. Given the inevitable, persistent heat and humidity that is coming, I will gladly take cooler than ideal this time of year, and like it.

Haha I think the weather was just my excuse to finally take much needed break. Got to be ready for a rough holiday weekend coming up B)

Looks like the much sought after "perfectly warm" holiday weekend coming up, other than possibly some showers on Saturday. Low to mid 70s for highs, and 50s at night.

That Crooked Crab one sounds great! The Hefeweizen they have sounds good too. Been a while since I’ve had a legit one. Been IPAing it a lot recently, but like you I have been trying to cut back. Been keeping it to Thursday-Sunday only.  However, when hockey comes back, it will be whatever day the Caps play. :lol:

Ya never know.. out of all years since the last actual cool summer we've had, this year seems like one of those years where the warm ups keep getting delayed in the LR and we're ending up with a sunny version of easterly flow diarrhea for the next 10 days

Maybe the year without a winter will also feature a "non- summer". I am down for it. Would be awesome to experience a New England style summer for once.

Still a bit of snow up on Mt Adams and Mt Madison.

Headed back to flatland for a few weeks soon.

That’s an amazing view. Fall should be spectacular. My partner is from NH so I always enjoy getting up there and ME especially in the summer and fall.

It's amazing. The prior owner of this property took great pains to position the house so the epic view is perfectly framed through the great room windows, and there is also an observation point on the deck where it sticks out and you can take pictures with zero obstructions on the sides. The pictures don't even do it justice as there are massive buttressing ridges on both sides the camera misses.

Just finished watching Mr Tornado. If you did not get a chance to see it you should. Very fascinating and the older Miss J said so. 

It was awesome. Fantastic wx imagery and incredible story. He stuck to his ideas and work in the face of criticism and we’re all safer and better off for it.

There are snow patches that survive there well into July, and even August sometimes. I was up there last summer the second week in July, and there were some hard core skiers getting a few turns in.

I didn’t know your wife passed. I’m sorry for your loss.

Great pic, I’ve been meaning to get up there and hike all those peaks for years.

Thanks 007. Actually yesterday she would have turned 55. Hard to believe it has been 7 years. She loved NH and northeastern VT. We almost bought a 2nd home near Burke in 2005/06.

Let me know how that is.

I've been contemplating a "pie" version of the fruited sour w/lactose.

Today is equally awful. Did get outside with the kiddo and did a weather science lesson today, saw some military jets fly by too. couldn't tell you what kind, big bulky tails on them. boxy.
