Guy needs to get his bread and milk!
My mother (born and raised in the northwest) used to hate this about living in North Carolina. I remember she used to come home going. “What the $^%$% is wrong with these people buying up all the bread and milk because they’re forecasting an inch of snow????!!!!” It became a running joke in our family. “Ayagh! It’s going to sleet... let’s go buy bread and milk!!!”
Did you hear Rush on Friday?
He took the “nanny state” credo to the umpteenth level!
It was a hoot.
(Unfortunately, some idiots took him seriously-—they appreciated his warnings not to go outdoors.They’ve already been indoctrinated.)
If they really cared the would a PSA for guns and ammo.
And Pizza! Remember no pizza delivery during blizzards.
And then someone from Texas might think the northeast just got a bunch of DQs.
I went to a DQ in California and they didn’t know about turning them upside down.
Where I live, it’s bread, milk and TOILET PAPER. Do people only buy one roll at a time? Cracks me up every time.
Did you hear Rush on Friday?”
Yes, it was a hoot. Particularly when the gal called in and said that Rush had forgotten to remind the people not to eat yellow snow!
I would hope that most of his listeners understand why and just chuckled but I wonder how many of the people who only read the lib blogs still don’t know why or perhaps even tried it just because he said not to.
An inch of snow triggers the urge for Milk Sandwiches.
My stepfather delivered milk to stores, restaurants, and schools so we had a ringside seat for the spike in milk sales associated with a storm. When I was in college and helping him during winter break, we were always amazed at how much milk could be sold in small town grocery stores in north-central OK. We wondered what it might be like if we lived further north in the Great Plains.
I was listening to the Weather Channel the other day (they are good little obedient libruls there) and the female anchor said something about people doing what they are “ordered to do” as far as not driving.
I kept thinking, ol’ Adolf would have loved her.
I forget where I heard this one... but it was a story of a grocery store employee who was questioning why it is that whenever a winter storm is coming, all the sudden EVERYONE gets a craving for... French Toast!
(bread... milk... eggs...)
That bread and milk stuff is so 70’s.
Here in my neighborhood it’s Beer and Beam.
Yep. Gas up the generators, make a beer run and put the loaded 12 G by the door. ‘Night hon!
Bread and milk? I want strawberries with whipped cream on top! Let’s go for the good stuff.
I’m an upstate New Yorker who lived in Virginia for a year. Two inches of snow in Va and no signs of life.
Turning what upside down?
What’s the point of stocking up on milk if the electricity goes out for about a week? It’ll just spoil. That’s just mega-stupid.
Laffed so hard it hurt.
The last time I bought TP was several years ago. I have a spacious basement. NH is nearby and lacks a sales tax. Same for paper towels.
Shampoo? Deodorant? Toothpaste? Internet beats brick and mortar. Order enough to avoid shipping (and sales taxes)!
LOL I’m savin that one.
ITS COMIN RIGHT FOR US!!!!!!
Just put the milk outside in God's giant refrigerator. But hide it so the people who didn't buy milk don't steal it.
The DQ Blizzard
A friend from TN called and asked me how am I surviving the “house arrest” in NY. Told her no one sees me drinking my illegal 33.8 oz soda.
In the wintertime, I use the trunk of my car as a freezer and my mudroom as a refrigerator. I give the fridge 4 months off. How’s that for being “green” LOL.
Hm. right now it’s minus 7.2F. My “refrigerator” is in deep freeze.
You must take it out of the trunk and put it in the freezer to thaw out. :-)
Make sure I have enough cinnamon and eggs also. I make the kids French toast.
As a kid, best thing that I remember about snow in the NE, was sledding and my mom always had a chicken in the freazer for soup.
Don’t go out?! Screw that, it was a winter wonderland. Snow tunnels, snowball fights without fear of lawsuits, all the neighborhood dads would wet down the snow so we could play ice hockey.
The fear the media and loca government created is another example of the pussification of the American male.
Especially among the lactose intolerant (thus the run on toilet paper, too).
I was raised in Northern Michigan, the UP, so I’m a Upper.
Came to NC by way of the Army and stayed.
You are right about the folks here. Snow or Ice storms and Hurricanes bring out those last minute shoppers in droves.
The News always lets you know a few days in advance and I stock up then but most try and get everything as the wind starts blowing of the snow starts falling - and of course the shelves are mostly empty.
I think that is par for most of the east coast.
Don’t forget eggs & TP!
AYYY-MEN, brother .... amen !!
Native Bostonian, grew up in the 50's when REAL snow happened and the transister played GOOD music.
Ma looked like Donna Reed and girls teased you by lifting their dress a little.
Candy bars were huge and only a nickle and if you kicked the Coke machine just right, you got a free one.
“Candy bars were huge and only a nickle and if you kicked the Coke machine just right, you got a free one.”
And if you got caught (guilty), dad gave you a nice shot to the chops, explained what you did wrong and how it is a reflection of your character and then took you over to Mr. Kaplan’s store to say you were sorry.
An hour later he was helping you wax the rails on your flexible flyer and taking you to the hill for a day of sledding, no love lost.
I was thinking milk sops.
They had their own brand of fun and music which only made me occasionally quip, "Y'knowww .. the way WE did it was .. " (or words to that effect)
But I had to stop any of that reminiscin' stuff and just let 'em be.
But gawwwwwww-LEE! we had fun from morning to dark on Saturdays and all I ever got was "where were you ... go and wash for suppah"
I’m not a prepper to the extent many Freepers are, but I learned to be well stocked after my first winter on my own. That winter was brutal. Snow up to our eyeballs plus subzero temperatures for almost 3 months. Today, I have enough paper products and other non-perishables to last till the rapture. The freezer is well stocked too, but in the event of a power failure, I have two primary staples — peanut butter and crackers. Nutritious and don’t need refrigeration. If it’s cold enough, my unheated garage works well as a refrigerator.
You can always put the milk outside if there is snow.
Native Bostonian, here too. Grew up in the 40s. You want to talk about REAL snow?? ( And yes -—I walked to school uphill both ways!)
I saw the same thing when I was at Ft Bliss once when it snowed. El Paso was utter chaos. It was like bumper cars. No one knew how to drive. It was quick comical at times to see people walk with long stride steps on snow and ice. No center of balance + a slippery surface + gravity = fun for a northern boy.
That confuses the yellow snow issue.
Right....Themlk will freeze to death in the snow.
Right....The milk will freeze to death in the snow.
Input ... output.
Don’t forget that you’d shove your finger into the coin return pocket on every phone you passed (before they added the little swinging doors)...sometimes you’d get lucky and find a small fortune. Man, that was heaven.
“Turning what upside down?”
Obviously not a Texan. When you get a Blizzard at DQ they are supposed to turn it upside down so you can see that it is thick and not melted and runny. It’s a Texas thang.
Bread and Milk? I would rather buy dry powder milk to mix with flour to make something like biscuits or real home made bread.
My Uncle, who lived on the HIGH PLAINS of Colorado, said everyone should always keep two weeks of supplies on hand just in case there was a storm and you could not get to a store. Two weeks supplies does not take up much space.
****Whats the point of stocking up on milk if the electricity goes out for about a week? Itll just spoil****
Just set it out in the snow. It will keep.
My momma used to make Jello back about 60 years ago by mixing it, then setting it out in the snow.
We learned how to live without a refrigerator many years ago. Got by with just a portable cooler and a block of ice for years.
****The last time I bought TP was several years ago.****
Just save up a few back years of telephone books! The paper is pulp and not slick like the old SEARS catalog.
