Its absolutely insane. All the weatherman has to do is mention "chance of flurries" and everyone immediately rushes out and depletes all local grocery stores of Bread, Milk, and Eggs. I guess, while isolated and pinned behind a massive inch or two of snow, everyone goes into survival mode and makes French Toast. What else are you going to do with those ingredients? I would think that the point of "stocking up" for a "blizzard" would mean gathering items that could be used/consumed without the use of electricity. What exactly can you do with Bread, Milk, and Eggs without electricity? Sure you can have Cereal. IF it was on your list when you went to raid the grocery store. You could drink the Milk but that wouldn't really satisfy a hunger for long. You could make a sandwich providing, once again, that other sandwich materials were on your list. Eggs are pretty much useless without electricity or a heat source for cooking. Unless you're Rocky that is. I just don't get it. The entire OMG WTF PANIC!!!!! attitude is just stupid. I swear the local weathermen own stock or have some other vested interest in the Grocery Industry and cry SNOW!!!! whenever they need a boost to their portfolio. ;-)
No worries though. I've got firewood and plenty of food other than milk, bread, and eggs so bring it on Mother Nature.
