    Talking Cooling you drink in the winter

    Just stick it next to the window, lol, works in the interior, not sure about the southern part of the state.

    Hey at these temps it slushies up from the air coming in through the handle.

    Before you tell me to shut of this air flow, I like fresh air flowing through the house. LOL

    Must be warmer where you're at. Here your beer stays cold sitting anywhere in the cabin below about waist level.

    I remember those days, lol, but you have to look at the bright side of breathing that fresh col air. My thermo-meter was stuck at -42 this morning and went to get a haircut and could'nt see 100 feet. Was thinking it was a little colder than that and when I was getting the schalping done she said hers was bottomed out at -60. Mines kinda stuck at -42 all day, never changed so I really don't know what it is out there.

    We used to keep the cold beverages on the floor next to the outside wall. Soda would freeze beer, would be cold. Mama thought it tacky so we keep a cooler inside, freeze water bottles outside to put in the cooler. It works.

    We use a sheet of eps styrofoam leaned up against the wall over the stuff we what to keep cool. We have a little more control over the temp that way.

    I'd love to see the hogfamily in a commerical, robot coming out of the outhouse after a beer, lol.

    Might beat out the budlight commericals.



    Frezzing water bottles ( I like to use milk jugs ) can keep a cooler operating just like a frig. The meat that you want to keep frozen stays outside in another contanier.
