As the end is upon us, I am technically not snowed in yet but the storm is edging its way towards Central IL. As if I weren't tired of winter enough already, now we have a "blizzard" heading our way and all the chaos and paranoia that surrounds it.
We live in IL and yes, we have snow. Lots of it. I can't believe the hype that this snow has brought with it. In the last two days I have heard/seen the following conversations:
News casters: As people of Central IL prepare for the blizzard, grocery stores are keeping busy. People swarming to stock up on milk, water and perishable,s flood local merchants.
A local news website has the following updates on the blizzard:
A photo of my local grocery store meat section:
Me: Are you prepared for the blizzard?
Mom: Yes, I have groceries, medicine and blankets.
Me: But are you prepared for the power going out? What will you do if the power is out?
Mom: Yes, I have lots of quilts.
Me: But are you prepared for when the rioting starts and people break down your door for those quilts?
Mom: Ummm, yes.
Me: Do you have a weapon?
Mom: I have a baseball bat.
