HA! I had a driveway like that in Boston. I put a trash barrel full of sand at the top of the drive so if it iced over I could just throw down a few shovel-fulls. First week it was there, the idiot trash collector emptied my sand into his truck. I refilled it and put a huge sticker on the barrel that said "NOT TRASH". The following week, the idiot trash collector... well, you can probably figure it out. Illiterate dumbass!
Phosphor---I live in Syracuse, maybe 60 miles west of Cooperstown, and around here it's quite easy to get Ommegang brews. It happens that because it is a cold night, I had a Unibrue Fin du Monde, and I am just now following it with an Ommegang Hennipin, which is probably my favorite. After many years of drinking beer, I've kind of settled on Belgian-style brews as the best. They really do "taste great."
To make this post a bit more relevant, the wintry roads around here today were very slippery, and it took me 1/2 hour to go 6 miles. I saw a car in a snow bank, too, but I think the driver was a poor inexperienced teenager, and I felt sorry for him.
When I was young and we had a bad snow storm, all of us were eager to get out and drive in it and have fun sliding around. Now maybe I'm a bit to old to enjoy slippery roads; besides, then I lived in a small town of 2000, where there weren't any busy, congested highways like where I am now. The whole environment was different.
But today, today, instead of just Bud and Miller and Genesee, there is Ommegang.

I like all of the Ommegang stuff, but I think the Abbey Ale is my favorite. Yummo!
There's a little dingy place just down the road from me that started carrying their full array a couple-three years ago, and I swear I've sold a bottle to a walk-in customer every time I've been there. I get a little cup and give them a taste...BOOM! that's all it takes.

Accordong to ratebeer.com, Abbey Ale, and also Three Philosophers, received the greatest approval, at 97 (out of a possible 100) each, while Hennepin got a 93 and Rare Vos an 88. But those are all terrific ratings.
