SNOW-MAGEDDON 2010 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope everyone is nice and warm inside there home by now, or in one of the warming centers set up around the county for those without heat. Its been a hell of a day here trying to dig ourselves out from under all of this stuff, and not having any power would not make this situation any better.

It was nice to see the neighborhood pull together today, and work as a team to dig everybody out, and to check on the few elderly neighbors that we do have. Hopefully it anything worse would ever happen, we can come together again and help one another.

Shopping with sheeple

We went to our local grocery store this evening for our monthly big shopping trip. There is a big storm forecasted for tomorrow, so we had a lot of company in the aisles.

Most people around here that "panic" shop, seem to stick to cleaning out the milk, eggs, bread, and of course the jumbo packs of Charmin extra soft, so we stayed away from those aisles to avoid any conflicts over the last gallon of 2%.

The thing that I was surprised at, was the shortage of pizza rolls, and frozen waffles. Of all the things that could be wiped out, pizza rolls and waffles would not rank too high on the list on must haves.

But what if it was switched? Plenty of pizza rolls and waffles, but milk, eggs, bread, and TP were wiped out. It would have been pandemonium at Giant Eagle.
