I had one of those before - years and years ago. I left a 6-pack on the side porch “to get it nice and cold” is how I said it. Of course I forgot and by the time I went out to get it, every can was full of beer slush. Poured out sort of chunky. Didn’t taste quite like a simple cold beer.
So the storm is over for you then? Our barometer is still falling. Currently at 29.64" and dropping every 10 minutes or so. Still snowing… have about 3"/7.6cm on the ground. It’s not supposed to end until around 12:45 AM, but that time always changes - sometimes later, sometimes earlier. Now if I can just get my wife not to help me shovel. She made a snowbank all along the gully and I had to shovel the snow over that and into the gully where it “disappears.” As soon as I talked her into going back inside I went along the edge and shoveled the snowbank down into the gully. Now when I go back out after the snow stops, I don’t have to lift the shovels full of snow so high and throw it up high, just lift slightly and toss. (I learned that all on my own when we had to clean intersections in the spring. With the tailgate down on a dump truck, we’d have to sweep the sand into large piles, then shovel it onto the back of the truck. I always started by throwing it toward the front of the box, but one guy would keep on making a pile across the back of the truck. Then everyone had to throw the sand even higher to get it over his pile. (Got the foreman to give him an “easy” job on another crew. Then no one on this crew had to kill themselves shoveling heavy wet sand.
One good thing is that the winds are calm, it’s a balmy 28F/-2C and the snow looks beautiful both on its way down and on the ground. Before heading to bed I have to make sure I shovel beneath the pine tree and toss out some more seed. I’m sure the deer will get to it first, but they don’t get it all.
