Grocery Store Lemmings

by Sherry Riter in Weather

the good stuff

When you live in a place that doesn’t get snow very often, there is a mild sense of panic that happens to the community. The thought of being trapped in your home immediately brings about the fear of a lack of food and heat.

The place that everyone convenes without even any pre-planning with neighbors is the grocery store. It is a bit humorous. The shopping carts are so full of food that it makes me wonder if anyone ever keeps food in their house.

In my area, we are expected to receive somewhere between six inches and two feet. Big difference between the two amounts!

Like lemmings, we all drove to the grocery store. I only had to buy a few basics and not a mountain of groceries.

So what did I buy?

The basics.



Fresh vegetables.

Fresh fruit.

And healthy powdered covered donuts , of course!

When we lived in TN, everyone behaved that way. If there was a snowflake in town, school was cancelled. However, where we live now, there's still ice in the school parking lot. I kind of miss the TN way of stopping life for a snowflake:)

Hope your doing well:)

I got chips, milk, Toaster Strudel, and Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs. Forgot the donuts. Dang!

Stopping by from SITS – my emergency kit would include salsa and corn chips 🙂
