My dad, who was a Scoutmaster when I was born, used to tell of the Winteree
that was so cold the leaders took turns standing watch all night. While
checking on the Scouts they kept a pot of coffee on the fire and each time
it got low they would throw in a handfull of coffee and add water.
In the morning they could only get one cup to pour from a "full" pot. When
the lid was lifted they found that no one had emptied the grounds out all
night and the pot was full of coffee with no room for COFFEE.
Thanks again for the memory jog.
