Went skiing and dusty hunting yesterday...visited 5 stores and one mountain...skied for about 4 hours...beautiful fluffy powder stashes!!!
No bourbon stashes, however. After visiting a multitude of stores in the past month and only scoring 6 dusties I'm getting a little discouraged. I think the liquor control state is huge factor and maybe a lot of the stores I'm visiting have had a recent overhaul and/or makeover and all of the old stock has been eradicated or re-located. I'm going to stick with it, but I'm trying to lower my expectations.
When the wife & I returned home from our quest there was 8-10 inches of snow to deal with in the driveway which needed immediate attention. I skipped the end of the Cardinals/Eagles game to take care of this, dreaming all the while of the ER10/101 I would pour myself as a reward. The ER was fantastic, it's warming abilities were significant (thanks, Oscar!). Waking up this morning to find another 3 or so inches of powder in the driveway was okay, but I wish I could've played hooky again today to hit the slopes and the stores!
