Haha....this one hasn't been done yet right? [wow.gif] It's starting to be that time of the year....SHIPPING SEASON! Most of us that live in hell like conditions during the Summer have to wait till the fall to have our shipments sent out.....often waiting months for some real gems to arrive! Here in the Central Valley ca. we had a little cool down for a couple days....so I had some stuff ship out! [dance-clap.gif]

SO....what SHIPMENT did you receive today?

it was really cool the past two days. Like wear a jacket when outside cool in the mornings. High of 69 in pasadena on tuesday and high of 74 today. Where I ship to in LA is another 2-3 degrees less. Even Bakersfield was 75 high yesterday and high 70s today. Definitely should have shipped my norcal stuff down to socal. Doh!

The last 2 days were nice, but I'm out of town the rest of the week, so couldn't risk missing a shipment.

Hopefully this type of weather sticks around - favorite weather and the reason I live in CA.

Exciting morning for me: my 2013 EP sauternes from Maison Vauron arrived. No problems with high heat in the southern hemisphere, though my city is expecting an unseasonally warm 19 degree Celsius (66 Fahrenheit) high today.
3 x 375ml Coutet
3 x 375mi Suduiraut
3 x 375mi Rayne Vigneau
2 x 375mi Doisy Daene

2 x 750mi Climens
1 x 3000ml Climens

Intrigued to discover that the 750ml bottles of Climens came in individual (nailed down) wooden boxes; I haven't seen those before for 750s?

Cheers...Mark

I think its supposed to get hot again this weekend and into next week in DC. Maybe it will be better up north. Honestly, I would say late october earliest for DC considering how August & September have been.

Kind of frustrated that Pride Mountain sent my shipment out. The confirmation email said that they would wait for appropriate shipping temperatures. It's high 80s in Chicago, and mid 90s in the southwestern US. At least they shipped 2 day air I guess.

Looks like the North East will have a weather window early next week - low 70's for a few days. Shot out several emails to get 2.5 cases sent out on Monday from a few NY and DC shops.

Now I have to 'defrag' (remember that old computer term? [snort.gif] ) the cellar and 2 Danby fridges to fit the incoming into spots alongside their sisters and brothers from the same producers. Luckily I still have 2 levels to add to my racks.

Let the games begin!
