I receive a phone call at 5:30am this morning. Of course, I am immediately concerned as to what it could be, and I am dead tired. The great news is that it is a call from the kids' school district. They reported there would be a two hour delay today. It was really great news. It's like someone calling and saying, "Hello, I'd like to inform you that you can get an extra two hours of sleep this morning". I was pretty happy to hear that news, I went and turned off the kids alarm clock, re-adjusted mine, and fell happily back to sleep.
I got the Sam Adams Winter Classics Variety Pack for Christmas. Since I've been moving, I haven't had a lot of chance to dive into those beers. I did finally start trying out some of the beers in there, and here is my short review of Sam Adam's Chocolate Bock.
