What is going on? Didn’t any one tell Mother Nature that it is Spring? The calendar says April? For God’s sake its almost May! Isn’t the Saying April showers bring May flowers? Not April Snow you don’t gotta mow. Ok, that is enough of a rant. This was the view from my front porch this morning. For Pete’s sake the sandbags have been out of the truck for over a month! Last weekend we mowed the lawn, tilled the garden, mowed down weeds in the pasture burned slash, and generally did outdoor activities. I think this weekend we will go sledding! My kid has a sunburn from his track meet two days ago for Cripe’s sake!
Ok, so this is definitely stout weather, but I’m drinkin’ IPAs this weekend. Last weekend when it was in the upper 50s I purchased a 12 pack of Samuel Adams Latitude 48 Deconstructed. So I thought I would dive into that this weekend…I don’t care how cold the weather gets. I know in a couple of months when it is hot enough to scramble eggs on the hood of my car I’ll be wishing this weather was back, if only for a brief arctic blast, but until then I am ringing in the warmer temps with my taste buds. IPAs and Burgers on the grill.
So how about you? You gonna crack open some lighter brews, or are you staying with stouts and porters until you are sure the warm weather is here to stay? As usual let us know in the comments, and let us know your plans. Hopefully something warm.
Oh, and I would like to say to all our readers in Nebraska (you know who you are, Angela) don’t get too comfortable with those 70 degree temps…This is coming your way.
