    Drove home from work and we have about 8 to 10 inches so far....Not a big deal...stopped at the Kroger to do my normal shopping....WTF? Is there a FRENCH TOAST convention happening? 3 different Krogers and all of the MILK, EGGS and BREAD is sold out and the stores look like they were ransacked......get a grip folks! it is SNOW, in the WINTER, in OHIO!......OMFG! I live in the midwest...we see LOTS of snow every year! Why are you idiots in this "panic" and mindlessly buying this crap? If you can't drive in anything but "sunny and dry" stay off the fucking road!...but then again, you are most likely the one that should just not be allowed to drive...ever!...god! how frustrating...OK...I feel better having vented that....Thank you .....icon_eek.gif

    Possibly because families with kids go through lots of those items, used for breakfast and sandwiches, and have to buy them almost daily. If you plan ahead for having 3 or 4 days of on-hand supplies, you need gallons of milk, dozens of eggs, and loaves of bread, that you normally wouldn't buy in such quantities, partly because of the refrigerator space the perishable items take.

    Im getting set for a long day of snowplowing tomorrow in jersey. Im hoping maybe only about 6, they are calling for 6-12 in my area with the potential for a bit more. Really when you get extreme amounts it really gets difficult plowing.

    I guess this is not the time or place for a guy in Florida to complain that it drizzled tonight and he was not able to play tennis.


    So he will be quiet and hope for the best for his buddiies up north. icon_cry.gif

    Cause when you try to get the snow off your car the wipers freeze to the windshield.

    Now I dont have to even listen/watch for the weather forecast to know when snow is in the offing. I just drive on the road and when I see "the lines" which are about a half dozen or so in each lane made by a brine (salt/water) mix they just started putting down this yea rin advance of a snow I know its coming. Apparently makes it easier ot plow and doesnt lead to massive ice buildup on the roads.

    Red...you are quite right...and nobody knows it better than me....try to keep ANY food in house with two teenage boys 17 and 15 , with hollow legs and a "black hole" for a stomach...LOL!!! I keep 3 gallons of milk in the fridge and go through about 12 to 15 gallons a week...usually more!

    Yeah, we had lunch today along the Intracoastal Waterway in Boynton Beach, Florida, with a delightful straight couple we know, along with our gay house guest from Holland. But we were thwarted by occasional drizzle that prevented us from taking an outdoor table right over the water. Still, our inside table had a lovely window view of the passing boats & jet skis, the brisk wind causing a slight chop that inconvenienced them but was visually entertaining to us.

    My yellowtail snapper was delicious, smothered in crab meat & artichokes, but being more than I usually have for lunch, my partner & I decided to share but a single chocolate crème brûlée for dessert between us. Conversation turned to this snowstorm, which may delay our friend on his way back to Amsterdam this Sunday, since his connection is through Memphis.

    Not in the storm's direct path, all flights may nevertheless be affected for a day or so afterwards. We can of course accommodate him here for as long as he needs, but once on his way he may become stranded.

    So we wished him bon voyage, as we raised our cocktails in his honor, mine my typical gin martini, not badly made for Florida for once. And all 5 of us having lived in harsher climates, also toasting our good fortune in being removed from all that snow nonsense, our Dutch friend if only for the past 2 weeks and headed back for bleaker things. And we remaining where we are, for sunnier things. icon_biggrin.gif

    Ah, then you answered your own question. If there's a chance you won't be able to get to the store for a day or 2, or it'll be closed, with starving kids at home, you stock up! And what would yours truly need to stockpile in such a situation? Why, alcohol, of course! icon_wink.gif

    I'm glad the snow is gone from my neck of the woods now. I love snow, but it is not fun when your whole entire yard (on a hill) turns into a skating rink...especially when you are trying to take out the dogs.

    I'm sure we'll have snow up to our knees tomorrow. Just a note, I was shoveling 10-foot drifts in the Blizzard of '77 at 14 years old. Yes, I am a Western New Yorker. We'd watch a bit of "Roots" on TV, then go out and shovel.

    9:30 Pm. Not Too Bad Yet, Can still see cars:

    It's really picking up since I took that pic 30 minutes ago. I see one car buried. Will do a picture at 11:00 pm. Hey, it gives me something to do, besides eat. icon_wink.gif
