It's coming!

What's coming?

Why, the white death, of course.

The weather forecasters are having a heyday, predicting snow/ice/wintry mix/more snow for our area. Counties to the north (namely us) look to get more than the southern counties.

While the kids (and Joe) have been prancing around, madly hoping for a snow day in the morning, I was busy stocking up on milk, bread and bananas to wait out the weather.

'Cause you know we may not be able to get out of the house for, oh, maybe five hours. We don't want to take a chance that we might starve...

Makes you wonder if the meteorologists are Kroger stockholders: There's a slight chance of snow, guys. Mark up the bananas/milk/bread and quick!

Ahh, I am counting the days 'til spring (and there's way too many!).

Are you in the path of this latest snowstorm? Do you make a grocery run when they're calling for bad weather? Do you even like bananas?

I am in the path. They're predicting 18-24 inches for us! I am not, however a blizzard shopper. In fact, the whole concept was completely new to me when I moved to Maryland. I don't think people do that in Kansas. I did send Neil to the grocery store tonight for milk, but that is because we were out and the Bean is a milkaholic. Evidently it was a madhouse.

PS - They've already called schools here tomorrow.

It doesn't take much at all for people to run to the store here. But it's milk, bread, and toilet paper :-)

And us? No snow. But we are looking at another 2-3 inches of rain. We have had so much rain here that the water table is at the soil level. All the rain now puddles on the ground and trickles into my basement.

I am really thinking about going to live in the desert!

A "wintry mix" is in our forecast. I try to stay away from the grocery stores when they're predicting snow/ice... 'cause it's insane. But I think I will have to make a run today... we're almost out of bread and milk!

We've been lucky in Chicago this year. We've had some snow, but nothing that has kept us housebound. They almost NEVER cancel the schools in the city anyway.

If major snow were predicted, I would definitely get caught up in the stock-up madness, especially if we were out of Diet Coke or something.

Since over half of my facebook friends live in the Cincinnati area, I've already seen multiple status updates referencing "white death."

Enjoy your bananas!

We're getting lots of rain but no snow. Georgia sucks with snow. :)

Here they buy up milk, bread and toilet paper. Not sure what is going on there...

You're so funny. My friend Michele and I always joke about the mad dash to the grocery store whenever there is a threat of "the white stuff". I don't make the dash anymore. But, given that one too many times the snow has been more severe than predicted, maybe I should. LOL
Bananas - love 'em.
Milk - not so much, but only organic.
Bread - I'm trying not to eat it too often.
I made it home, but the weather was gross where I was and the wind was extreme all the way home.
Still haven't watched the weather, but I heard more "white stuff" is expected tonight. Yea Chicago. LOL

They are saying we might get snow on Monday....I hope not! We already have to go to school until June 3rd...ugh.

Yes I LOVE bananas!!!

Brandy said...

We got hit pretty good - another 11" above what we already had. AND I think they are calling for wintery mix on Tuesday. Oh happy day! NOT.

I'm so over this...

I love bananas unfortunately so does everyone else in this God forsaken county. They were completely out of celery, bananas, potatoes, pork and chicken. I'm not even lying.

We had about 6 inches and I do make sure that I have milk and bread. By Sat night most had melted off.....

But there was enough for kids to sled and build 3 snowmen, two of which toppled by this morning.
