I have no intention of turning into a pillar of salt. Wink

MJ, your trip down here is getting close right?
jb- not likely at this point, but not totally out of the question. I can live with skipping the trip this year if it means I can realize the permanent move down before next snowfall! I will keep you posted.


Frown

A permanent move would be much better though. Smile
Blizzard in Fargo Tuesday/Wednesday morning. We only got 6-8 inches, central part of the state got up to 17 inches!!

So after shoveling out, we made it to the airport and flights were only delayed an hour. So I'm now listening to the beach and drinking up cup of coffee, waiting for a big storm to come in here. Luckily no snow on the beach in Santa Cruz. I can live with rain and heavy winds.

There is this new fangled invention called a snow blower. You might want to look into picking one up!! Big Grin


We have a couple of them, but you can't use them when there is 10 feet of snow, which is about where it is right now. Still now power. Mad

Sounds like you need to hire a pro!!
After a couple of weeks of nice early spring weather, I thought I would be OK getting my JJB shipment sent. Even the forecast going into last week seemed very temperate so I gave the go-ahead a week ago friday for them to ship on Monday. And as each day went by, the forecast temps crept lower and lower and lower Mad
I think they made it just in time. Other than corks pushing out, how can you tell if your wine got frozen?

Redhawk - Just as it takes a great extreme to finally get wine in a tyro shipper to freeze, once it does truly freeze, it takes a long time to thaw. You'dlikely receive a bottles slurpy at your door. I wouldn't be overly concerned if there's no telltale evidence at this point. In a styro, it really does take an extended period of time subjected to deep cold to get those bottles to freeze.

Thanks for the reassurance. I did open the boxes as soon as I could, and the bottles felt fine. The night before, it got down to about 10F here, but I'm thinking the boxes were en route somewhere south of here, or at least indoors in a warehouse, or even buried in a truck with other packages for insulation. Plus, the daytime temps have been above 32, with sunshine, at least locally. I'm not too worried.
Thanks for asking Ed. I'm surprised no one has posted.

I finally got my power last night since it went out last Saturday. Lots of big tree limbs and some good-sized trees that fell.

Lucky for me, my GF never lost power at her place and the temps weren't cold enough to freeze the pipes in the house. GF is a teacher and her school district has suspended school through today. She's waiting for a call today to know if school will reopen tomorrow.
We had the pleasure of flying to NYC on Saturday morning, having snow and freezing rain during the day and night and coming home Monday to flooding and rain etc - was great.

NYC was fine other than lots of fallen tree limbs due to the heavy snow and leaves still on trees, was a mess but no power issues and Sunday was beautiful albeit chilly for us
