“CANADIAN HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED TO OUR NORTH WILL DIRECT COLD AIR INTO CENTRAL SOUTH CAROLINA”

This is a direct act of war. When are we going to hold the Canadians accountable?

My neighbor, a transplanted Yankee, was moaning about having left his snow shovel up North when he moved down here.

“Why?” I asked>

“Well, to shovel my driveway.”

I replied “Friend, you can shovel your drive all you want, you ain’t getting on the road.”

Doesn’t sound like much of storm, the trick is to have the news scare the fools off the road so they are not there when you are.

Of dubious use if the power’s out for days.

Then again, raw eggs wouldn’t be very appealing either.

Lucky you!

We figured out why we weren’t getting any eggs. Too many roosters ‘bothering’ the hens. Hubby fixed that this weekend. One of the sex maniacs is in the crock pot right now.

We’d been reduced to an egg or two per day. The day after he met his demise we got TEN.

Clearly the hens were not happy hens. We’d inadvertently opened up a comfort hen establishment.

Here is the Upstate, I went to Costco on Saturday and you would have thought it was Christmas Eve! They were packed! I bought a case of Sterno and 4 bottles of wine....good thing I already had 3 bottles at home. I can't help but add the booze in, that is the south Mississippian in me!
My sister went to Publix this afternoon and said you could not even find a parking spot! I believe it maybe too late for the bread and milk for those who shop after work tonight

Our daughter lives in Kansas and last week she sent a picture of the egg shelves in their closest grocery store. They had about four 18 count cartons on the entire set of shelves. Milk was gone entirely.
