Tomorrow in North Carolina

There won't be a loaf of bread for 400 miles.

My Take said...

Add milk and eggs to that list.

I always laugh when I see the idiots cleaning out the shelves in grocery stores whenever the forecast is for a couple inches of snow. Not only do they grab all the milk and bread, but huge amounts of bathroom tissue. How long do they figure on being trapped in their homes? Months? Usually the roads are passable within hours after the snow stops. Even when we got hit by two feet over a 24 hour period the major roads were cleared within a day.

Yep. Got a text from my sister. Trying not to laugh.

State of Emergency in Metro Atlanta already: snow not due for 24 hrs yet!

Just think of what a Bizarro society we are in: if ahead of time you buy food and supplies for such occurrences you are a 'paranoid, crazy prepper,' but if you hurry in a panicked frenzy to buy groceries and snow-shovels because a typical snowfall is coming, that is normal! I suppose that is 'sane prepping'! Too bad I'm not 'sane.'

I lol'd a lot at this one. Yeah, here in NC there's a lot of folks guilty of this, but I for one applaud them. They wipe out the bread and milk aisles, leaving the beer and wine aisles virtually untouched. More for me! Same thing at the liquor store: they're so busy buying bread they leave Mr. Jameson practically all by himself.
