    Stay warm. Here in Texas, the wife wants to light up the fireplace if the temps get in the 40's.

    speaking of ".............. deep in the heart of Texas!"

    when i went down there last summer to watch our son play ball i very much enjoyed the 7th inning stretch in Houston....after God Bless America we got to sing that 'deep in the heart of texas song'..it was a fun experience

    Stay warm and dry Scott. I hope it goes easy on all of you. We are still cold here, but no snow expected.

    and people blame Canada for winter storms. There's no snow here ATM. We haven't even had half an inch total yet. Although the forecast is calling for about 5" on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. That figures cause I have some driving to do. But forecasts are usually VERY unreliable.

    Hmmmm
    Currently sitting in a hotel room just outside of Boston. Calling for 4-8 inches by AM and 8-12 by noon sunday. Maybe I will get stranded in the hotel and not be able to get to plant for work in the AM and be able to get some sleep.

    Just outside Washington, DC and we have 24 inches of snow. It has finally stopped snowing. With all this bad weather, I had time to rack two wines, clear and stabilize my CC Old Vines Zinfandel and remove labels from 30 bottles.

    Lucky for me, my neighbor has a great snow blower which he used to remove the snow from my driveway and sidewalk.

    Plan to bottle my RJ Spagnols En Primeur Chardonnay tomorrow. Let it snow, just more time to play in my winery.

    I did take care of my neighbor with bottles of RJ Spagnols Orange Chocolate Port and Limited Relase Argentine Trio. My wife also baked a loaf of bread which we gave to my hard working neighbor.
