Quick run to the store before the storm

December 19th, 2008 at 09:04 am

Waiting in that massive snow storm to hit today. Yay! Snowed in for the weekend! Smile

Headed next door to Walgreens to pick up some things: lunch meat, cheese, Advil, allergy meds. Came to $26 (!!) AND I used 2 coupons and got $4 off. Yes, the $26 was after the coupons.

BF has been craving bagels, so I stopped at DnD and picked up half a dozen. $5 and I know I could have gotten them much cheaper somewhere else, but with the storm coming I just wanted to get home ASAP and I really didn't want to deal with panicked New Englanders buying bread and milk. Yup, for some reason, when a storm hits, we buy bread and milk. I have no idea why. And no, I didn't buy any bread or milk (well, I got bagels) because we already have plenty in the house. Smile

I found a nickel and 2 pennies while I was out, too. New Pennies on the Sidewalk Total: $2.17

    It's always that way with the first storm too. I'm working downtown today. I think I'll take an early train out. I was suppose to drive the family to NYC tonight. I talked the wife out of that, but now I'll have to shovel the driveway.

    Should be fun driving home in my rear wheel drive car.

    Stay warm Koppur, enjoy the snow, and watch out for those green lines.

    The bread and milk thing happens when snow is forecasted here(doesn't have to actually happen, just the threat!!) LOL. I have never quite understood it myself.

    We just got the ice part of the storm. School was cancelled so my girls got an early start to Christmas vacation! Have fun in the snow!

    In North Carolina, it was bread, milk, and eggs. Making French toast after a snow storm must have been an important Carolina tradition.

    Hope you are enjoying the storm by watching it from the window!
