Bread, Milk. and Toilet Paper

The Boston area is bracing for a huge blizzard that could bring as much as 3 feet of snow!

This reminds me of the Blizzard of 1978.

Mom and Dukakis

The governor of Massachusetts, Mike Dukakis, dressed in a casual sweater, appeared on television to advise the people to prepare for a massive snowstorm.

I had never paid attention to what the governor of the State was up to, but I listened to him, was impressed with what he had to say, how he said it and what he was doing to handle this major event.

Ever since then I have followed his career, through good times and bad. He always got my vote.

Now, back to what's happening here.

I live in a senior development with approximately 1,800 residents.

We have our own television station which updates the community on many of "the happenings." Today we have been informed that a contingency meal plan will be in effect, since all restaurants will be closed.

Today "Packed Dinner Service to Go" will be available from 3:00 pm to 5:00pm.

From what I hear about the weather, it probably will be available tomorrow also.

Because of the pending storm, supermarkets have been inundated with shoppers loading up on bread, milk, and eggs.

A funny thing happened a few days ago.

My son took me food shopping, and since he will be away for a few weeks, I decided that I had better load up, so I bought more than I usually do.

One item I bought a lot of was "toilet paper." In retrospect I thought about my large purchase...

When I was living at home with my parents I was always concerned about us running out of toilet paper, SO when Filene's Department store had a sale, and would deliver, I took advantage of that sale.

We never did run out of toilet paper!

Most shoppers load up on bread, milk, and eggs, I load up on bread, milk, and toilet paper! ;-)

Bread, Milk. and Toilet Paper

The toilet paper sounds like a very wise purchase. Hopefully the snow storm won't be as bad as predicted. Stay safe and take care of yourself.
I like your posts very much and follow them from all the way across the Atlantic in Yorkshire. Its quite cold here but from what we've been told you're in for some very serious weather!
My Dad always bought mucho toilet paper when it was on sale ;-). How wonderful you already shopped. Stay safe and warm Millie.
Hi Millie, Re: the Blizzard of '15

I went out shopping for meals I can eat without cooking incase I lose my electricity.
Cream Cheese with Nova Lox and Bread,
Tuna, Eggs which I will boil and make Egg Salad and of course peanut butter and Jelly

I have plenty of paper towels and of course Toilet paper
Stay Safe and Warm and hope you do not lose your electricity

Have been missing your "folksy" posts and so glad you are safe and well-stocked. Face it, we can live without bread and milk for some time, but toilet paper??? Early this morning I see that we got about half and inch, so no need for shopping.
So glad to see you posting again. Stay safe and warm and wiped!
We are fortunate that here in Michigan we have just the normal Winter weather but I still keep ahead of what is running low in my larder and my cupboards. I don't like running out for just one item I need. Keep safe during this weather and it is great to see you back momma
Have missed you
and have been checking in frequently.
So pleased you are fine
I have family near your area
so know of the snow.
I stock up on the same.
Take care..
I hope you have enough TP.
Very glad to see your post. Although we (in N.C.)only had a dusting of snow, the grocery store bread and milk shelves were cleaned out!
I'm so glad to see that your are blogging again. I missed your comments and was worried about you. Stay well and warm.
Nothing worse than running out of TP!

...and wine...!
Blizzard of '78 was great!
Hi Millie. Chancy here from Driftwood Inspiration
I haven't been posting recently. I am glad you are ok in the 100 inches of snow in Boston. You look fantastic!
