  1. And finally, these five different Magic Hat offerings have been fun.
  2. I've been working my way through a 6-pack of this deliciousness.
  3. One of the things I love about this forum is that while we all felt like Charlie Brown as his back slammed onto the ground on Monday, I didn't see anyone saying juvenile stuff like "that's it, I'm done with this winter" like I've seen in the past on other forums.
  4. I see the NWS is still calling for 2-5" in Collegeville with the update they did recently to the Winter Weather Advisory. Guess they're still banking on heavier snow bands this afternoon? Winter Weather Advisory URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 109 PM EST Mon Dec 2 2019 PAZ054-061-103-104-030600- /O.CON.KPHI.WW.Y.0020.000000T0000Z-191203T0600Z/ Carbon-Lehigh-Western Montgomery-Eastern Montgomery- Including the cities of Jim Thorpe, Allentown, Collegeville, Pottstown, Norristown, and Lansdale 109 PM EST Mon Dec 2 2019 ...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 AM EST TUESDAY... * WHAT...Snow expected.

  5. Sleet started mixing in with the plain rain at around noon in Collegeville, PA.
  6. Chilly rain in Collegeville. No glaze.
  7. A little freezing drizzle in Collegeville over the last hour does not seem to have left much if any glaze.
  8. Ah, my favorite season has returned once more. My avatar is finally appropriate again (though thinking of cold & snow is never wrong).
  9. I ended up having Vermont beer. Long Trail Lager, Zero Gravity Green State Lager, and two different beers from Magic Hat.
  10. Oblique Sunlight would be a great indie band name. Or maybe an ambient song like Brian Eno circa Music for Airports era.
  11. I'm with you, Tom! I certainly love January & February best since I love cross-country skiing and tracking big snowstorms, but November is probably my 3rd favorite month. Doesn't hurt that my birthday kicks off the month, but it's often a great month for getting outside (even on the grey days) and hiking aside from possibly slipping on wet leaves.
  12. It's a good thing some of you don't live in Vermont, Maine, Minnesota, Washington, Alaska, Canada and so forth since you might not survive less than 9 hours of sunlight!
  13. This has truly been one of my favorite November weeks I can remember. Arrived last Saturday in Burlington, Vermont with 2.6" of snow on the ground from the day before and temperatures falling through the 20s after sunset with winds gusts over 20 mph. Visited Stowe which I could see myself trying to move to someday. Was under a Winter Storm Warning in Burlington for 7-12" and had 7.5" Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning and then got back to PHL after sunset just as temps were plunging and flurries were flying. Man, I love winter weather!
