    50 degrees and the North Face down jackets coming out here in SoCal! You people don't know COLD.

    Cold is ice on your eyelashes, motherfuckers.

    And that is how I'm able to walk around in shorts in Thousand Oaks for Christmas. Although, Maker's Mark and ginger is helping, both with in-laws and gun laws. Motherfuckers. My carry gun is freezing in the Great White North without me. Ironically, so is my carry knife.

    Rained last night and this morning and now it's 27 degrees with 15 degree low tonight. I cant even open my driver side door because the lock is frozen.

    I will say this. Sharky's is one reason I don't entirely hope CA falls off the map in the next erfquake. :yum:

    How do I like AK? It fucking rocks. Anchorage has some killer places to go out, drink, eat, catch movies. Hell, at the Bear Tooth, you can do all of those at once. Movie theaters with booths, booze and grub are highly underrated. Middle Way is a great breakfast shop, Kaladi Bros. is some awesome coffee that helps with the cold and the dark.

    The mountains make a killer backdrop to every drive. More so up to Eagle River and Chugiak. Susitna is visible to the South.

    All in all, it's home.

    I've heard good things about brining. The one we had for Thanksgiving was killer. Rosemary and sea salt, cracked pepper and thyme. Spice Shack, I think it was?

    I grew up in NJ. I've done enough shoveling of snow to last me the rest of my life.

    Most of SE SD have been covered in 13+" of snow and winds around 25-40 mph. Good times...

    In Seattle, for the next ten minutes or so. Marveling at how SeaTac manages to put connecting flights at the furthest geographical points apart. Hi to Laurel, MG, Chip and the rest of the PNW shooters.
