Snow is coming:
Logic says we must buy bread and milk!
Snowed a few minutes the other day but we had four slcies and some half and half
Got by by skin of our teeth.
Can't let that happen again

LOL! We were warned "snowmageddon" was going to hit and it didn't. Driving wasn't good but snow totals were way under what was predicted. We were supposed to get 8-12 inches-official total for Merrimack was 5. We didn't even get that much in our yard. I did see a lot more people than normal shopping when I went on Friday (my usual day) but amazingly enough I did not see hoarding.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Grew up/loved in WY/UT
Lots of SNOW
Can't remember a time when MOM couldn't get to the store
Course I had to shovel the driveway so she could get car out of garage

Most of the Main Streets were/would be plowed so traffic could get around town

And then (and NOW) pantries had supplies just in case


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Oh I remember but we had it good.City we lived in had no snow removal equipment until the mid seventies possibly. Taxes were already high enough.
In the mountains Grand Ma an everyone was self reliant and snow was just another familiar thing to be dealt with. No one went to the stores for storeboughten food anyway.
In Indiana,Uncle operated two fruit orchards for decades. In the seventies when it was proclaimed we were entering a new ice age. It did not get above zero for months and usually double digits below zero. Dirt road25 miles or such t a paved road and pert neer as distant to a town. Bit three story house well and pump.
Ground froze deep. Well froze even, though the house was on top of it.
They always kept a large stocked pantry for a large family. Ordinarily trips to the store were once a month. In the ten foot drifts, no one was going anywhere, About like South Dakota, Not even the horses. Power was out for a long time. Uncle and two oldest boys cut fruit trees to feed the two huge fire places.
Raised a Sharecropper with Dad.Self Reliance and hard work was the normal.
Today there might be a lot of loss of life from People raised soft that moved to the real deep country. They wouldn't want to, or know how,or have the stamina and determination to use and axe, or kill and butcher deer, or beef, or hog in arctic temps and snow or anytime. Or walk the necessary miles to a store when no vehicle can move.
I can possibly sit here and recount a book of the hard times and in the cold times and others where you had to be self reliant.
We got it good, really good and easy today.
Everybody put on your Santa hat hat and get out. don't turn the TEE VEE on and have a Merry Christmas.

We now have Walmart deliver 8-10 boxes of cereal, plus 18-24 quarts of non-refrigerated milk substitute delivered to our rural home evey few weeks now.

Also, every couple of weeks we order all our food over the Internet and then drive to the grocery store at a scheduled time and have them bring the whole order out to the car and load it into the trunk. They have one of our credit cards on file so the whole process is quick and easy and ... we're all using masks and breathing safe air.

It's so easy to keep stocked up this way on many household items that we'll probably keep this up after this whole pandemic thing is over with.
