No, there aren’t any stores in this area that are geared solely toward emergencies. This is a post about inclement weather predicted and what I’m doing to take care of myself.
Starting tomorrow afternoon, snow with accumulation is supposed to come into the area. According to WeatherBug, there will be 1-3″ of snow and sleet between then and Sabbath afternoon. The higher elevations could get as much as 4″. Now, that doesn’t sound like much but, with the back roads and mountainous terrain plus drivers who don’t know how to navigate in such conditions, it’s the better part of wisdom to hibernate until it’s over.
Today, I went to the Pig so I would avoid the rush that is bound to take place tomorrow. There isn’t anything organic there (except for cheese, I learned, but I don’t eat cheese) so I got a couple of bundles of romaine and some red leaf lettuce. Save a Lot was next on my agenda and I got a bunch of bananas. Not a BUNCH of bananas but ONE bunch. With what I have at home, that should do me until I can get to town to do my regular grocery shopping.
Now, as long as the power doesn’t go off, I’ll be sitting pretty if I have to wait out the weather.
Tell me, what would you not be able to do without if you were snowed in? Leave me a comment, cooked or raw.
