Like New Year's Eve 1999 all over again!

No Treats

This is what a forecast of 22 inches does to the grocery store. (We wanted to pick up some tomatillos to make homemade verde salsa for homemade chicken enchiladas, but they were completely sold out!)

If winter storm warnings operate the same way as washing the car (always followed by a muddy rainstorm), we'll probably get barely three inches now.

  1. lol amazing how people stalk up, looks like that here too. You'd think the snow was not going to go away for months sometimes.

    1. I didn't even think to check the pizza aisle, Pat. I'll bet that and the ice cream got hit hard, too!

      Here, you never know how long it will last; you can't rely on the forecast, and we've had a couple of big dumps that have lasted into May and June!

    1. Truly was hilarious, Charlotte. I wonder if these people go shopping every day after work. Do they not keep anything in their cabinets and fridges?!? :)

    1. I think I was as shell-shocked as you, Lizard! I couldn't believe how low the stock was on everything we walked by!

      Do you remember the year we got the 36-incher, before we bought our house, when we walked to the grocery story for a pizza just to get out of the apartment, and there wasn't a single pizza anywhere in the store?!?

    1. Thanks, Carla! Empty shelves are indeed scary; thankfully I was already well-stocked before the storm, so the shortages don't affect me. Except the tomatillos...

  6. I checked your weather and it looked like you didn't get the threatened 22 inches....

    I can just see everyone holed up eating cookies and lettuce and drinking juice while a few scattered flakes drift down outside. :)

  7. P.S. Never mind - saw your comment above and apparently you DID get many inches! So much for the weather website.
