What to stock for a hurricane

The milk and bread fetish that RI gets before storms started here.

Add eggs to that list and you have my town readying for Big Snow (which really is very rarely that big).

Best as i can figure it, we must all have a Snow = make French Toast thing.

It's a Rhode Island obsession; everyone goes out and buys milk and bread before a storm (or in the case of snow, before a possibility of a flurry).

The bread is so if the powah goes out, ya can make sangwiches. Not for nuttin, but, I dunno what milk'll do 'cept sowwah.

(I mean, if you're visiting, it's one thing, but if you lived here, your obsession with milk and bread would come back; you'd do what you had to do. And the wife says, "Hey, you know what? This coffee milk's too strong".)

Is this a NOTE TO SELF: GET THEM kind of post, or one mocking everyone who is all IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD, WE'LL NEED BREAD AND MILK?

Like I said, I'm hoping for stormy, but not damagingly so.

Mocking, directed at the state of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.

Use [marquee]fill in text here[/marquee] only with pointy-brackets instead of square ones.

Why is this just a Rhody thing? I think Mass does this too. I mean seriously, my wacky coworker wanted to board up her house, and she's in West Roxbury.

/hurricane-victim-fail

Oh, and which one is the marquee symbol? I flunked keyboard-symbols 101.

:D

There are pockets of it all over the country, but RI's milk-and-bread thing is directly related to the Blizzard of '78. Maybe MA's, too. I was in Wilmington during that storm. Hella big piles of snow.

just do [marquee]fill in text[/marquee], only use the < > tabs instead of the [] ones. You write out the "marquee", there's no keyboard symbol AFAIK.

During the first blizzard of my mom's first winter in Indiana, she went to the store expecting a similar effect. Only she lived in a college town, so in fact there was plenty of milk and bread, but no beer or chips...
