Brew Day Interrupted

Still contemplating
Braving the nasty snow storm
To keep my brew day

Snowing On  Brew Day

Photo and haiku by Captain Hops.

References: I was planning on brewing today, but this is where I brew. The snow is supposed to keep falling until 10:00 PM.

Inside

Inside with his beer.
He puts off shoveling snow.
Until tomorrow

Written by Captain Hops.

References: They said to expect an inch of snow. We’ve got at least six now with no sign of tapering off.

Shoveling Snow

The path is now clear
I can sooth my sore muscles
With stout refreshment

Snow Day

No brewing today
I just deplete my stash and
Watch the white stuff fall

Snow in Maryland

Others purchase milk
But I load up on brewskies
For the coming storm

Written by Captain Hops.

References: In Maryland when they call for snow, the populace freaks out and stocks up on milk and toilet paper. Grocery stores are an absolute mob scene. It’s important to have your priorities straight.
