Shopping for a [ahem] "blizzard"
So, we're scheduled to get 6" or so of snow on Wednesday night. For this Michigan-born-and-raised chick, this is a mild inconvenience, not a blizzard.
However, having been here for 32 years (O.M.G.) I know how the DC area operates -- or doesn't.
I'm going to the store today because 1) I have no food, and 2) I'm kinda hungry, and 3) Cookie Dough.
I thought I'd share my laughter when I realized I also need... milk (for my coffee) and TP. I'm skipping the bread part. Around here, people might not drink milk, use TP or eat bread, but if there's a blizzard? By God they stock UP!
I usually just park my truck at the end of the drive with my windshield wipers up. I don't worry about anything else. If I weren't really, absolutely empty on food, I wouldn't even bother looking outside. But I actually have an empty 2nd freezer and condiments in my fridge. No canned food at all. Oh. Rice. I have rice.
I'm gonna get in and out early -- beat the Milk & TP crowd. What do you do if you know it's going to snow?
