You can have the ice for free... there is still a huge pile of yesterdays hail slowly melting in my village. In your area it was pretty bad as well, you find some and make hailstorm margaritas.

Make more margaritas! We ended up needing seven bags of ice for our party. We probably could have bought an ice maker for that!

Maybe just your local Supermarket ? - Yesterday, I saw a guy buy 4 bags of Ice, and he got the Ice for free, and just had to pay the thermo bags.

Re: I NEED cold beer - Please help!

For those of you in the Morges area, there is the Esso gas station close to the Aldi store that sells ice. It is the Esso station that is connected with the Mercedes car dealership (close to the Coop gas station).

From memory, they sell both crushed/loose ice and cubes. Cost is in the range of CHF 9.50 per bag.
