It's a-Coming

We're supposed to get a big snowstorm tomorrow. Estimates range from 7 to 18 inches. We'll probably not get much. ha ha.

Anyway, having ANY amount of snow in the weather forecast results with a rush to the grocery stores to get milk and bread.

My question is - why do people wait until a snowfall to want french toast?

But seriously, folks, this is Pennsylvania. Snow does fall here. Why all the panic? Even when we last had a real blizzard in 1994 and 1996, we were able to get out and around (if you wanted to) within a few hours. And that was without the town plow coming to our street. This was everyone who was able to pitching in to get everyone dug out. At that time all the old folk on my block seemed to have a snowblower, even if they were to frail to get out and actually use one. So the younger folk just borrowed 'em and got all the sidewalks and driveways cleared.

I know. It's so crazy. Like you said: we live in PA. It snows here. And the streets DO get cleared fast.

That's funny about the french toast. See, I'm more of a campbell's soup guy myself. Even if the gas goes out and the wood's soggy, you can cook it in a beggar's beard.
