I’m sure there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation for this, but why is it that every time we get a little bit of snow around here, all of the grocery stores sell out of bread and milk?
Why not nacho supplies or chili beans or Cocoa Puffs? They may sell out of those items too, but usually, it’s bread and milk. I don’t get it.
It looks like the snow is over for now, and the roads don’t look too bad today, so maybe you can venture out for some of the events, sales, and specials on the list this week. Try to stay warm.
Here’s what’s new from our sponsors.
