Heaven Hill

I'm sorry Cathy - I think you were dreaming.  I looked at the Climate Prediction Center and it looks like March will have a good chance of being cooler then normal. They say summer will have a good chance of being warmer then normal which will please Columbus Water and Light (and me - the hotter the better).

Looking at all of their predictions, which is like reading tea leaves, March will be the last "cooler the average" period for over a year!! 

We have a good chance of a pretty sizable storm hitting us Tuesday - looks like the biggest of the season at the moment at 5-8 inches but we will be near freezing so the height of the snow is up for grabs.  This is your typical springtime storm and depends on when it hits and what the temperature is. We could have thunderstorms of rain OR snow and 8 inches might actually be conservative.  It all depends on the track the LOW takes.  It could get exciting. 

After the storm it will cool down for a couple days but then at LEAST 3 days in a row in the 30s for NEXT weekend.

Who put pillow shams in my car.   Seriously.  I looked in my back seat and there are two pillow shams. I had no idea what they were and DJ has never seen them before.  They just appeared.  Fess up!

A friend and fellow photographer from Madison will have one of his photographs featured in Criminal Minds on CBS March 11th.  The photo of the capitol will be used as decoration in a police station.  COOL!!

Want to test your retina?  Google  "portland Japanese" and click on images (office safe).  HOLY CRAP!!!   

Speaking of color - that whole dress thing sweeping the country.  Do you see black and blue?  Do you see white and brown?  I'm so confused - I see white-ish and brown while many people see black and blue.

    
I put this in photoshop and it's just about what I see.  I can not understand how anybody can see black and blue. The white has a bluesh tint to it but not BLUE!!  Like royal blue which is what many people see.  And black?  Not seeing it. 

Here is what photoshop says

But here is a question - which way is the woman twirling!  Clockwise or counter clockwise.

Time for Ibuprofen.  Had homebrew club last night and a new member is from Kentucky.  We started talking about bourbon because bourbon is taking sales away from craft beer.  Craft beer is taking sales away from macro beer and bourbon is robbing craft beer (notice how many craft beers are bourbon barrel aged).   I'm glad I'm not in a homebourbon club.  

Ever hear about a bourbon called Heaven Hill?  In 1996 they had a fire when lightning hit an aging warehouse with 20,000 barrels of bourbon. It spread to other warehouses when a 2 mile long river of flaming bourbon flowed down hill.  At one point 100,000 barrels were on fire in 7 warehouses. 

6% of the worlds bourbon were in flames
