It’s Snowing 3

It can’t decide whether it wants to snow or flurry. In any case, I’m glad I bagged DL.

I have described before the strange way in which Delawareans react to snow.

I went to the local Wawa this morning to buy a loaf of bread. It was snowing at the time.

I said to clerk, “I have to tell you, I’m buying this because I’m out of bread, not because it’s snowing”

She was still in hysterics when I left the store.

    Is that like a mini mart, or something? I looked at the site & can’t be sure.

    Every time we get a forecast of a storm with even 2″ called for, the stores are mobbed. You’d think people thought they would be snowbound for weeks, the way they buy.

    Wawa is the local mini-mart, coffee shop, gas station, quick stop, deli, etc.

    I don’t call snow “the white death” for nothing.  After spending three years in Vermont (where it’s really cold and snows – a lot), the reaction here never ceases to amaze me.

    You’d think a person with any sense here would be used to it. It’s not like it’s a foreign substance, or something. Just an irritant. Unless it gets like it was 2 years ago.
