Picked up a bottle of  Thomas H Handy rye.
Paid to much for it but still not even close to what itís being sold on line for.

I got George Dickel 2019 Bottled in Bond which was the 2019 bourbon of the year.  Decent.

Someone gave me a bottle of Breckinridge Colorado bourbon last night, and like an ass I had a bunch on a Tuesday.

Snow was heavy and the snowblower couldn't handle.

Lots of shoveling yesterday.

I went out and did it at 8:00pm and midnight the night of the storm then again 9:00 the next morning so it wasnít that bad except the end of the street where the city plow went by.
About two hours all combined.

Took me an hour.  I was late to the game so that hurt me a bit.  Easy though compared to prior seasons.

When I first moved here, my wife was pregnant.  Got 36 inches of snow, and plows would not be here for up to a day.  Neighbor and I made a snowblower path over a quarter mile from my driveway to street, with the idea we'd put her on a sledding tube and run her down the  street to the main road if she went into labor.

It took so long because the snowblower couldnt touch the bottom, so we had to muscle it through with no tractions to clear the first 2 feet, then back track to get the remaining.
