Put me down as tentative- a few too many moving pieces just yet to know for sure.

We won't be able to attend, but just pointing out that I posted a nudge for a post-Xmas CT tasting in last week's pub. Not sure if you saw it:

Steve and I are in.

Ran out of room for the wines, and can't think of a good quote for now

I am so sad to have to miss this gathering. Unfortunately, I'll still have relatives in town leftover from Thanksgiving. It's been way too long! I miss you guys!

we would very much have liked to have come.

Bump. Coming up soon. Accuweather predicting bright sunshine, perfect for travel.

Weather forecast for Friday still looks good. Travel weather for Wednesday, not so much, in our area at least. Leaving Tuesday evening to get away before the snow piles up. Been looking forward to this visit far too long to give up without a fight.

We'll manage. Turns out they canceled the winter storm warning well ahead of schedule, and we'd probably have been fine staying home, but this way we're partway there, and we had a comparatively relaxing night's sleep. It's all good.

I'll be stopping by, but probably only for an hour or so- I need to get to Poughkeeepsie and get a bird in brine at some point on Friday!

This definitely was a VERY different tasting! I was glad to be a part of it. It was definitely worth the drive to spend time with some good friends and taste some good stuff!

We are home safe and sound. Pulled in at 9:45--decided that we needed to stop at the Lee Outlet Mall and then, got dinner near Geneva, NY. Clear sailing weather wise.
