They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. We say, when life gives you -30°F windchill, make a snow cooler. While we were preparing dinner this past weekend, we started running out of room in the fridge. I took a quick look at the balcony we have off the kitchen that was packed full of snow and said, "Hand me all the liquor!".
warning: your non alcoholic beverages will freeze, be careful that you don't put things out there for too long or you'll get a bit of a mess when things start exploding (um, just speaking from experience!).
