The BackBlast:


It was a pleasantly fridge morning with the majority of the AO covered in snow and ice not unlike Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back.  Pax circled up in the only somewhat cleared section of the parking lot around the ominous cinder block coupons hinting at what kind of shenanigans were in store for all.  At 5:30 the Mission was stated and disclaimer given by Short Circuit, turned things over for Ditka to get things started.
