So here we are again with another winter storm. What should you do immediately upon even hearing the two words “winter storm?” Well, OBVIOUSLY you should immediately go to the store (Shoprite, Walmart, even Walgreens will suffice) and load up on all of the milk, eggs, and bread you can possibly find.
Because when you are stuck in a winter storm and are faced with the possibility of losing power – the first things you want to purchase are perishables. Things that can spoil pretty easily. DUH. Forget the canned goods! Don’t worry about water! Milk, bread, and eggs is where it’s at! That way, if you are powerless, at least you can make french toast..right? Mushy, soggy, and gross…but hey..at least you have the ingredients 🙂
Toilet paper? Yes. I would want that.
I’m just poking fun at the hysteria that breaks out in my city whenever there is a mention of snow. At this point, we are estimated to get 6-10 inches of snow. I understand the need to be prepared. Candles? Yes. Batteries? Yes. Backup generator? Yes. Even though we don’t have one (with babies, we prob ably should add it to the list!) But why MILK, BREAD, AND EGGS?! Our checklist for a snowstorm:snacks, juice, soda. Done deal! The grocery stores in my city have been straight CHAOS. My husband ventured out to pick up apple juice (lol – you can see where our priorities are!) and told me you would think it was the zombie apocalypse…lol. I guess I don’t freak out as much because it will be bad and we won’t be able to go anywhere (and by we, I mean me…my husband will go to work no matter what the weather). So while the world is eating milk, bread, and eggs…I will be shoveling cookies down along with some apple juice. Stay safe all!
