Re: Preparing for Snow

Sorry, but itís going to take something more than Bud Light to motivate me.

Re: Preparing for Snow

If I found snow in my driveway tomorrow, I'd need more than beer.

Don't say that too loud. They got it in Baton Rouge.

I'd say IPA would work better, but at that rate I'd lose interest before I got past the steps.

Re: Preparing for Snow

Now if we could find a way to hide bottles of red in between layers of old bottom paint...

Just be glad you're not in Valdez. 15 inches in an hour and a half.

Re: Preparing for Snow

Very likely. I'm in Juneau and it has been between 40-50 degrees for the last few days. Two weeks ago it was in single digits. Gotta love crazy winter weather.
