Donna Louise here. Snow-geddon II: Return of the Snowstorm, hit late last night or early this morning. It’s impossible at this moment to know if it’s still snowing or if the snow is simply blowing from other places. High winds have hit and snow globs fall from the trees and rooftops. It’s not a good time to be outside walking because you might find yourself pelted by masses of snow.
Yesterday was another day of madness at the grocery store. No place to park for drivers who just had to run to the store to get some last minute items. No shopping carts to use because they were all out. And lines about thirty people long with the necessities like cookies, wine, hard liquor, eggs, bread, mouth wash. The store resembled an ant hill of activity.
For three days in a row, the eggs disappeared from the shelves as quickly as the store employees set them out. Green vegetables emptied out of the bins. Green vegetables? Maybe lots of vegetarians eat green vegetables during Snow-geddon.
People in electric scooters and wheelchairs zoomed up and down aisles. One man in a scooter almost got nailed by a pick-up truck when he shot out into the parking lot without looking. He wanted to get home before the snow started, but he almost made it to his heavenly home.
I still can’t walk on the sidewalks because of the depth of the snow. Looks like I’ll be walking in the streets for weeks now until all this stuff melts.
Hope you all are safe and warm. So far the electricity has stayed on. Flickering this morning as I was making breakfast, but nothing since then. In the area to the west of me 3,500 people lost power when the lines snapped under the wet snow.
By the time all these snows have passed, I will have the cleanest house on the block. I never realized how much time I spend away from home. Oh, well, gotta get my Belgian endive rolled in ham out of the oven and put in my ear of corn to roast in butter and red pepper. That’s lunch today.
Again, take care and be careful if you have to drive in this stuff.
