Quick We Need French Toast...

The snow is falling rather heavily right now and has been for a couple hours. It started out with freezing rain and sleet. Now it is those big, fluffy snowflakes (Dave called them angry snowflakes) falling quite rapidly. The forecast is for up to 8 inches, all you that live up north can just go ahead and call us big babies ;-) . Tonight was supposed to be karate for Eddie and swim class for JonJon at the YMCA. After driving on slick roads to picks Eddie up from his chess tournament Dave and I decided it would be best to skip the YMCA since that would give the roads two more hours to get messy. We made a pit stop on the way home at the grocery store instead to make sure we had everything we would need for tomorrow. As we walked by the dairy case I couldn't help but laugh. The normally full egg and milk area was practically empty. Dave and I made bets with the kids if the bread aisle was ransacked. It was, but we saw people looking lost by the lack of dairy and bread. Apparently french toast is the food of choice for snowbound people. We decided to buck the system and buy stuff for spaghetti.

LOL! When we're expecting lots of snow here, DH likes to walk through the grocery store chanting "Milk! Bread! Toliet Paper!" Guess he should add "Eggs!" to the mix - or just yell "French Toast!"

LOL, I did regular grocery shopping yesterday and everybody there looked like they were buying a months worth of groceries in anticipation of the snow & sleet. Carts were overflowing and while there was plenty of bread, I did have to buy the more expensive brand of milk.
