What's the deal with buying milk and bread during a storm? I never have but when I went to the stores the shelves were bare of bread and no milk!

I don't get it either, people around here act like they've never seen snow before. Even if this turns into the worst storm in the past 100 years the roads will be clear enough to navigate within a few days.

I always keep some extra canned goods just in case the city gets hit by an earthquake or a meteor, but buying a shopping cart full of bread and eggs because the weatherman said snow is on the horizon is silly.

Bread? Milk? LOL - isn't nothing new - I think it makes people feel "safer" if they get "snowed in". BUT __ Don't forget the eggs! As for my house-- we always have plenty of caned & frozen "proteins" (meat, fish etc.) as well as a 'gamet' of dry beans, rice, powdered milk, frozen eggs, corn meal, flour & yeast to make homemade breads & biscuits. I guess you can blame it on my Coast Guard background: "Semper Paratis" (Always Prepared") 1
GOOD LUCK everyone as we weather this winter storm.

I'm with you on this one Jan, It seems that everyone goes into the "Panic-Mode" instead of always just trying to be and stay prepared for the unexpected! May God Bless!

The education system here has serious problems. That's the reason they act this way.

I went to the store yesterday because it's part of my routine. They were pretty well stocked, but every aisle was clogged with human speed bumps blocking the aisles and talking on their cell phones. I could have gotten out 20 minutes earlier if the use of a machete was allowed. Nobody would miss these morons anyway.

Shopping isn't hard, people. Try not to be idiots,'k?

Idiot's with cel phones in the middle of the isle seem to be part of the "new" shopping experience. Same at the check outs. Not to mention the 300+ pounder youngin in the electric shopping cart sideways in the isle,Then the traffic.

Fortunately, those lazy people (not the ones who NEED to use the carts, just those who are too indolent to walk) will probably die from heart attacks and clear the pathways.

What about those semi drivers that have to get out in this weather to restock the stores. Been there, done that.

The government is steeping on those wood stoves. The federal Environmental Protection Agency has proposed new standards for wood stoves that would reduce the maximum amount of fine particulate emissions allowed for new stoves sold in 2015 and 2019.

Back in the day when you were a man about town? Back to when you partied? Back in the day when you had one night stands? And the worst thing about having those one night stands was having to drop them off at school the next morning.
