    " That beer sure worked on the old bladder! Elapsed time from starting my car when I dug it out and changed out of my boots to hitting the McD's (First John I spotted) on 9400 was 1 hour 47 minutes! It was worth it for the turns in the powder today. BTW, it wasn't as cold as yesterday either...
