Making wine from Juicy Juice. It’s a redneck talent passed down from father to son or from inmate to inmate, depending on where you learn it. My driveway is frozen and this is what is keeping me from getting cabin fever and becoming a cannibal.

Yes, the airlocks on those bottles are what you think they are.

I hope you all are faring better. Stay indoors and get some of those around-the-house projects done. It’s better than busting ass on the ice and then wishing you had made the redneck wine to take the edge off the pain.
