Yes, N., with a well, no power, no water.  Need that electric pump to keep the water flowing. 

 

I usually keep jugs of regular water around or fill extra jugs or buckets when advisories or warnings are in forecast for those little annoyances like being able to flush the toilet.  Some people just fill up their bathtub.  Around here, some people keep bottled water on hand because they don't like the taste of well water, but I don't think I know anyone with a well who actually goes buys extra water for mundane tasks.  Although absolutely, the water disappears from the shelves along with the milk (milk?!) and TP.

Good Afternoon!

Well, I did do my grocery shopping among the crowds. We Sunday morning regulars aren't used to the hubbub of so many people in "our" store. I couldn't even find a handicapped parking space!

@Frozenoem ...never would have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes...people with all this bottled water in their carts. That is one thing I never thought of until I read what you wrote. WHY????? Is Armageddon about to descend upon us? Cat LOL

I'm just so used to hearing about the French Toast people I never would have imagined water was a hoard-able thing before a snow storm.

Oh! here's a question...if people have "well water" is it affected if the power goes out? I know nothing about wells, but I know some people in this area do have wells. If that's the case, then I can understand them buying bottled water.

I just got my normal grocery order like any other Sunday and came home.

 

4 to 8 inches of wet snow...the hard to shovel stuff is due later today and into tomorrow.

Probably won't be going to the post office tomorrow, so I warned my Ebay customers that their deliveries might be delayed. It's still winter. We have to just "deal."

Stay safe! N.

Frozenoem,

 

I think we have to think outside the box with the wax.  Maybe, because it's slippery, works in snow. On shovels blades, not sure. I will contact her, to find out.  Nancy

Hey All,

I have no clue why there's a mad rush on the Supermarket today?.  Okay, so we may get some snow, or something. I am just picking up more donations for the Shares . Moving people to the Churches do to the weather and the cold.  I know always better to be prepared and ready. Catwoman5oo, not sure how much snow you are supposed to get. I hope you get all of your errands done. Frozenoem, hope the power holds. Tracking number sent in PM. UPS sending the other boxes. Nancy

30* and sunny, won’t last coldfront is a coming which up here means subarctic temps.

 

But, the good news for me is minimal snow, perhaps 6” vs 10”.

 

@catwoman500 

 

I can’t understand the bread, eggs and milk crowd. Or for that matter the must have gallons of water crowd, when they drink what comes from faucet year-round.

 

Need to play carefully, have to get some wood in, when weather people say 45-55 mph winds, there goes the power.

 

Enjoy

Froze

Hi, Everyone!

Happy March, a day late. March coming in like a lion. So far we have had nuisance snows the last 2 nights. Melting the next day has taken care of clean up although yesterday I did have to push the remains off the car. Right now it's 32, feeling like 29...no biggie.

Tomorrow's storm may be bigger than the last 2 events. Hoping I can squeeze in my normal grocery shopping tomorrow morning...probably amidst the "French Toast" people stocking up for the next century. Why do people do that? I can see it happening in the more remote places, (@Frozenoem ), but in the suburbs??? We know we are not going to be snowed in for weeks on end. Oh, well...what ever floats their boats. Cat Wink

Philly news...The Phillies acquired Bryce Harper for 13 years and an un-godly $335 million! Cat Surprised Sure hope he's worth it. He'll be introduced today in Clearwater.

Stay safe and warm, all! N.

@n566192l 

 

Geez coffee didn’t work at the post office, it generally works for me. But, most long time customers up here know I can be bought for a fruitcake if they need me.

 

Life in rural ME says PO won’t deliver without a Box on the street. Doesn’t matter how big your 911 emergency address is, it won’t happen. 

 

If fedex or United parcel service, is easier let me know. They don’t care who they deliver to, and do deliver to my physical address.

 

Will send you a P.M. for that.

 

Now, it’s 27* and full sunshine, feel cleaning coming.😇

 

Froze
