This made me feel sorta special yesterday:
We had a family emergency and were out of town all weekend. More on that never.
We did get home just in time for [insert clever name for ice storm here] ’11.
And yeah, I hate when people blog about the weather but I don’t feel like discussing important things today so I’m…going to go ahead and blog about the weather.
You see all TEH SHINY? Yeah, that’s not water.
(Note to stalkers: in case you were wondering, that’s not our house.)
I did get out for a run on Saturday, ending my “come back” week with a total of 14.5 miles and no pain whatsoever. I will run today, provided I can find a place that’s not covered by a 2-inch thick layer of ice.
If you were a reader of this blog back in November, you’ll remember how much I love Black IPAs, so I was saving this one for a special occasion (and what better occasion than a nightmare weekend followed by a nightmare ice storm?)
It did not disappoint me.
It’s a “high gravity black ale brewed with Ty Ty (no, not THAT Ty Ty) honey, copious amounts of hops and aged on toasted Spanish Cedar.”
It was strong with honey, cedar and dark fruit; hints of chocolate. Seriously hoppy but smooth as glass. Just what I needed.
All right. Life beckons. Be careful out there.
This one seemed painfully obvious. Enjoy:
