Duh, because the Illuminati, Nixon's Reanimated Brain and the Secret Jewish Overlords Cabal living beneath Mount Rushmore are heavily beholden to the French Toast Industrial Complex and demand the Weather Dominator be used at least twice a year to spike revenue.

Sometimes the answer is so simple you don't WANT to see it.

If you're Romney, you blame Obama for not being tougher on China.

Thanks Somacandra. I miss Northern Exposure, you reminded me of my grief - *sobs quietly*

10 bucks says the shelf containing flour is still quite well stocked.

/because you CAN, contrary to popular belief, cook without electricity.

Because it's French Toast weather. Whenever there's inclement weather, people stock up on milk, bread, and eggs even if they don't normally eat those things.

Why do you people always write "W. Va"? It's just WV. Hardly anyone who lives there writes it as W.Va. As for the article, you'd be amazed by the number of people who don't have internet access in WV, so local AM radio stations are usually their sole source for information.

I've been to W.Va. Folks in W.Va are friendly. Nice place, W.Va..

That would be American bread? Then, nothing of value was lost.

Never really understood why people's first instinct with an oncoming winter strom is to stock up on milk and bread. I guess bread can be a hardy base for lots of things, but milk? No power and it's bad in two days.

Yeah, OK. Did local AM radio not report for days that there was going to be a big farking storm and that it might be wise to stock up on food?

It did. I talked to many people down there before the storm hit and they knew it was coming. Most of those country folks are self sufficient anyway, many don't go to town but a few times a month. But now that the storm has hit, the power is out, and the snow is piling up, they need updates, so that's what the radio is for.

Are people really asking why there's no bread on shelves at the store? I'm wondering if there are people that believe that bread comes from a magical bread machine in the back of the store.

Milk will keep for longer than two days if you store it outside -- so long as it's *cold* outside. :)

Whenever there's a disaster, people stock up on bread, eggs, and milk.

There's something about danger that makes people want french toast.

If you're not buying bread from a place that makes it in the back of the store, you're buying crap bread.

My parents live in WV along Wheeling Creek which floods periodically. They always stock up on beer, Pepsi, and potato chips. They figure if you have to hunker down for a few days, might as well make it a party.

I always prepare a hurricane supply box every year. No bread and milk.

The biggest pain is not preparing it. The biggest pain is throwing shiat out. Batteries don't last forever. And even canned goods expire. And I'm sorry, if I'm not in the middle of a disaster, I'm not eating Chef Boyardee.

Do they realize that there's not a Wonder Bread plant in the back of every Walmart?

I know a lot of Mennonite bakeries in WV that make awesome bread right there in the back of the store. Actually, it's more like their house, they live in the top story and sell baked goods out of the lower. Nice people, and most know how to bake without electricity. Also, the quote about bread at WalMart was something subby added to the headline and is not from TFA.

Ahem.

FTFA:

EDMOND - On Monday, Tom Syner of WQAZ community radio in Edmond sat in his studio, waiting for a storm and trying not to let the butterflies in his stomach get the best of him.

If power goes out, he and his team are ready to go on the air to pass along vital information to the residents of Fayette County, just as they did during this summer's derecho.

"It's a responsibility I don't take lightly," he says. "I'm nervous."

The station's phones have been ringing off their hooks with Fayette County residents asking about schools and an absence of bread at Walmart.
 
2012-10-30 11:51:49 AM  
I'm sure they still have plenty of ammo in the sporting goods department, and someone in town must have bought that bread (your bread).

My wife sent me out Sunday night to get a few days worth of stuff and the local Wal-Mart was out of bread. farking savages.
