Where Is the Snow?

All week long, the weather forcasters have been predicting this HUGE winter storm that was going to hit us. Everyone got ready. The stores ran out of milk, bread, and various other things. The roads are all brined. Every school system in Tennessee closed last night for goodness sake. We-were-prepared!! As usually happens, when we are prepared, a whole lotta nothing happened. There are just a few flurries. I'll have to say, I was really looking forward to the snow. I wanted to stay home snuggled up on the couch with the puppies and read a good book all day. Instead, I'm at work, nodding off, drinking a cup of hot coffee.

I've always wondered why the groceries run out of milk and bread here, when snow is predicted. Is this a phenomenon only here in the south? Do New Yorkers run out and buy only milk and bread, when a blizzard is predicted? There was actually a local news story about how Purity Dairies couldn't keep up with the supply of milk demanded. The news mentioned this morning that, "if you have milk in your refrigerator this morning, you're lucky." What can you possibly make with just milk and bread? My friend Loki says that snow makes everyone hungry for French Toast. What would you make if you were snowed in with only milk and bread?

It's the same way here - I don't know what I'd do with only milk and bread - add a little bacon and eggs to it and we'd have a sandwich with a glass of milk.

It must be wonderful to have a job where you can be wrong all the time and still get paid the big bucks. The weather folks are the only ones I know who can do that.
