This is directed in part to my buddy TheRoff who claims that the snow is keeping him from his grill:
Roff Roff Roff Roff snow doesn't matter man!! Around my house the grill and a path to it gets shoveled out before the driveway. I don't care if I have to go anywhere but I HAVE to cook! As for ice...light 'er up man! The ice takes care of itself.
Don't let this weather stop you, just adjust your temps. And realize that beer will freeze so either drink quicker or switch to liquor!

DON'T LET THE WEATHER STOP YOU FROM GRILLING. IF YOU CAN GET OUT THE DOOR YOU CAN GRILL!!!

Oh no!! Maybe he can't get to the shovel, because it's burried somewhere under the snow.

Bob, snow is kinda like that fake white foam that you spray around your plastic Christmas Tree to get that holiday feeling, except it falls from the sky, is made out of water, and up north we drive more carefully in it unlike down there where everyone jumps in the pickup and does 90 just to see what it's like. (Causing many accidents that amuse us up here when shown on the national news) :twisted:

All the love

Ouch

Can you tell that those of us who live with snow and cold weather, just like steaks, don't like being frozen...

My best friend lives in Odessa, so I am honorary- he told me I could; actually- he made me do it.

We had an 18 car pile-up in town yesterday and didn't even need snow, rain or even fog. :shock:

Luke, I hope you weren't around that mess!

We don't need snow here for car pile-ups, don't need sandstorms either...all you have to do is pull out of your drive and your on your own..

60 degrees, light wind...I remember those kind of days. It wasn't all that long ago. Woke up today to 19 degrees, without any wind, expecting snow tomorrow. Kind of wonder what Christmas will be like...

My grill is close enough to the house, all I need to go is open the patio door and then light the grill and the snow around the grill will be melted by the time I am ready to grill

Things are a little different for me this year. However, usually the snow wouldn't bother me as much as the blowing cold weather. This is Michigan, and I would not want to live any where else, but grilling during warm weather is the best..sit back, enjoy a cool drink, read a book, and watch the grill...not gonna happen during the winter months here!

I remember when....

I feel another war story coming on. When we were in Germany, we lived on the third floor and had a tiny balcony. The balconies below ours were covered by the one above it but we were on the top and had no shelter.

I remember watching the snow flakes hitting the hot grill lid and sizzling, steaming and boiling away. I imagine a lot of folks thought we were crazy as we were located at the entrance of our housing area and everyone coming or going passed by. But we grill year round regardless of the weather. Rain made it difficult but not impossible.

Now with a large covered patio all I have to deal with is the wind...and lovin' it!
