Why do people rush out when a snow or ice is forecast to buy milk and bread? It’s a question I’ve always wanted to ask people. Me? I stock up on chocolate and peanut butter.
Ruthie told me that Walmart has a computer program that tracks the weather and they stock up on certain items days ahead. I guess Kroger doesn’t have that program since they ran out of Saltines…and bananas.
If I were stuck in my house for days, I’m a happy camper as long as the peanut butter and chocolate hold out. (By the way, did you hear this week that a nutrition panel has changed the designation of chocolate from candy to vitamin! Now, that’s the best news I’ve heard since coffee was released from the hit list.)
So yesterday, with a storm bearing down and shoppers hitting the stores in droves I moseyed over to see what they were buying. People were fighting over the last box of Saltines. No wonder everyone looked so unhappy.
I was giddy with excitement since I had two jars of Peter Pan and a bag of Dove Dark Chocolate treats and could justify living in my PJs for the next 30 hours or so.
Everyone else looked stressed out. Hark! A BLIZZARD is coming. The dingo’s will eat your babies. No power. Starving children in the street. Relax, everyone. It’s only snow. Sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Even my ragged garden looks like a fairy land under five inches of snow.
