Re: [Rant] Winter Storm Euclid...

Can the people who think of these stupid names please freeze to death in a snowbank?

I actually have a "tin foil hat" theory that supermarkets if falling into the red could get a surge of business by slipping the weather guys some hundreds to simply say the word "Snow" and people would flock to the stores without hearing anything more.

I just love how people here in the burbs stock up for winter storms like they will be snowed in for a few weeks. When the worst possible in the suburbs is being snowed in for a day.

Heck when I lived in Danbury, CT even the few really bad storms with a few feet of snow the city DOT had our road plowed usually with in six hours of storm end, and plows went by during the storm too.

We got 1/4" of snow last night in Winter Storm Frozen Death Cometh IV. I went outside and spent 2 hours shoveling it into a snow pile so I could lay down and freeze to death. It melted.....

Yep...and most people don't realize how much food they have in stock already.

There was a shortage of Chips Ahoy! cookies after Hurricane Sandy. I went to multiple stores, but no one had any. Then I saw the Nabisco truck put up to the supermarket loading dock. So I came back 2 hours later and go the cookies. Yea!

But, did you have enough milk for those cookies?

Actually, yes. Milk wasn't a problem. I had a Styrofoam cooler and ice that I got from Wegmans on Wednesday morning.

I also love that people stock up on perishables when a storm that might knock out power comes. Especially in the summer storms its funny to see people stock up on milk.
