About Me

My Photo
I'm from the foothills of the North Georgia mountains. I was a woodworker for about 12 years. Well, up until I had the rug pulled out from under my feet, and I was laid off. I got back into photography in 2008 and decided to give that a try professionally, but haven't made any money so far because rednecks, white trash, and hicks are cheap. So, I'm working in a local grocery store where some days I hear and see the craziest stuff. I tend to complain a lot about things, but I'm too poor to afford a good therapist. So, I decided to make a blog and complain online to all of you instead. But I digress. I really just wanted to do the blog to share ideas and stories with the interwebz. =D

Snow Day?

The weather forecast is for snow flurries Sunday night through Monday morning. There's no chance listed for any accumulation, but one thing that's 100% for certain, the grocery store's milk section will look like this:

Having worked in a grocery store, I can tell you that people around here go absolutely nuts. Most folks act like they're not going to be able to get out for days. Milk, eggs, and bread become hot commodities. Am I missing something here? Are we supposed to make French toast when it snows? Is that some sort of southern thing I missed?

I've been at the store part time now for going on 3 years. It's snowed twice since. It's even snowed 10-12 inches, and we were still open. And you know people are going to be out riding around looking at the winter wonderland too. My point is, there's no need to panic. No need to rush out and buy up all the milk, eggs, and bread. (Unless that French toast thing is true...) Just sit back and enjoy it for the 12 hours it's on the ground because you know it's going to be gone tomorrow. =D

Having grown up in hurricane alley, the same thing happens when a named storm is predicted to come anywhere close. We were too far inland for get evacuation orders, but all the same... Stores ran out of water, milk, eggs, and bread. People would drive around while the eye wall was at its fiercest. And just like ice/snow here, lots of cars end up in the ditches from sliding off the road.
