Yesterday, in Phoenix, AZ my granddaughter enjoyed her very own pizza in sunny 92º weather. On the east coast we prepared for a historic storm. It was predicted to be the biggest in New York City since March 1888 and rival the infamous blizzard in March 1993, which deposited a massive 10 inches or more of snow from Alabama to Maine.
The stores had been busy for two days with people preparing for the incumbent weather. Over the weekend we stocked up on all the essentials required for emergencies.
However, yesterday as blizzard cancellations soar we braved the crowds that brought the store managers out from behind customer service desks to the registers in an effort to shorten the lines that extended into the aisles. Our mission was to bring home the most important provision; Snacks! Luckily, we didn’t want Frito-Lay Party-Size Doritos. They are reportedly the first to go when people expect to stay home and watch movies.
Here’s a couple of pictures of how we enjoyed our time while the first couple of inches fell.
- Fried shrimp with cocktail sauce.
- Uno cards
- Party Mix
- Chocolate Chip Fudge Cake
- Kerrygold sweet cheddar cheese with Carr’s Table Water crackers which by the way were delicious.
We went to bed happy in anticipation for whatever was about to unfold and plenty of snacks left.
