All week

All week the weather persons have been talking about a winter storm coming. Maybe even 8 inches of snow. So Wednesday I was at the grocery with perhaps half of the people in my end of town. It was so busy I could hardly move around. You know the drill; Oh, sorry! Excuse me. I didn't mean to run into you!

After purchasing my groceries and getting back to the car in 50 degree weather, I was struck by how stupid I felt. After all, I was sweating. And anticipating a winter storm. Yes, anticipating it. Snow!!!! 6-8 inches of it.

It snowed last night, in between the sleet and the rain. This morning it is raining. And our 1 and a half inches of snow looks puny. So I have learned a lesson. Anticipation is not necessarily a good thing. And the weathermen don't know what is going to happen.

Its much the same here Judy when snow is on its way. The whole of the UK goes to the supermarket to buy bread and milk, and much more than they could ever need.
You can not even buy salt because its all gone to clear their paths.
I don't join in with them and just carry on as normal. If the milk runs out then it doesnt matter because i will always have water. And if the bread runs out i will just eat something else.
Lots of love to you.
