Selling Ice to Eskimos.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 1:43 pm

The temperature here is in the teens, and there is snow and ice everywhere — lots of ice. On many sidewalks, the ice looks like a snapshot of whitecaps on the bay during a strong wind. This happens when people walk through the slush and it freezes rock-solid that way. Walking on that stuff is horrible.

In many places on the streets (particularly on corners), the ice is several inches thick and it’s gray and ugly. I have had it with ice.

Having said that, I just returned from a slippery ride to the local convenience store, and what was the only item I purchased? Yep. A bag of ice.

Making cocktails with anything other than clear ice is, well, … uncivilized.

Call me Nanook.
