Exchange "bread and milk" with "plywood and beer" and it could be a person in the gulf region with an incoming hurricane

We have a snow warning for tomorrow, but it's Arizona snow, so it shouldn't be over a foot :(

Why does it seem there is a run on bread and milk before the weather events? Or is there reduced production before the events as manufacturers divert product to more long lived processes (i.e. cream, butter, ice cream and dried milk) or shut down production lines.

Didn't watch it. We always have enough food around to get through the first 2-3 weeks of the zombie apocalypse.  I like fresh milk, but if you lose power...

It's because French Toast is an important emergency ration.

Wow, I want to watch NONE of his videos.

He needs a lesson in Vertical Video Syndrome

On a side note, here in Michigan. I stopped to pick up a few things after an errand yesterday... and it seemed everybody in town was out to pick up their usual Friday/Saturday groceries before the snow storm hit. In a way, it's common sense; they didn't clear the shelves and stock up for the next month like people in some places do, they just got the stuff they would have picked up over the weekend, to avoid the icy roads.

I like how there is always a run on toilet paper whenever a potential disaster looms. People think that any departure from routine will make them poop from fear. Given recent reports these TP grabbers are probably Republicans or old ladies - same mental outlook.

They need more guns!  Who needs to be afraid of running out of toilet paper when you've got a gun!

In fairness, I did lay in a supply of beer and booze. Roads will be crappy tomorrow, and the liquor store will be closed Sunday, so best lay in the important stuff.

This video is spot on in for Texas. If it snows this is exactly how everyone acts. The grocery store aisles are left bare. Everyone is fighting traffic and driving around in the worst part of the weather.

Any time weather like this threatens I just buy normal groceries but pick things that can be cooked effectively either in the house or on the grill.

If the power does go out for a few days I can use the grill. If it doesn't, well I just did my normal shopping for the week so no big deal. If it really is that bad and we're trapped for a long time and I run out of milk? I'll eat cold chicken noodle soup or cold leftover burgers for breakfast. What's the big deal?

Also, anybody who doesn't understand having to buy 45,000 square feet of toilet paper in a situation like this has obviously never lived with a woman... I don't know why they use so much and I don't want to, but they do.

/ when Sandy hit earlier this year the grocery stores ran out of canned fruits and vegetables, bottled water, tuna and peanut butter

You consume it like everything else.  Break and Milk get the "headlines" because they're the two most common items that have a limited shelf life.  You're a dumbass if you don't always have a decent supply of non-perishables, but there are some things you always have to get on a regular basis, especially if you don't have a cube freezer.

In the midst of all the chaos preceding any major storm, i like to head on down to the local supermarket for my favorite storm ritual. I buy the biggest cucumber in produce, a tub of vaseline, and a corkscrew. When the cashier rings up the corkscrew and inevitably looks up with a raised eyebrow, i say "just incase" and wink in an exaggerated manner. I figure that with the sh*t they have to put up with for the 18 hours before half an inch of snow falls, the least i can do is give them something to think about.

You can always tell a survivor of the Blizzard of '78.
This is how they react to every snow forecast.

Unfortunately it's fairly accurate. It's as if, the minute they say there's going to be a blizzard, everyone just HAS to make French Toast. Bread, milk, eggs, maybe coffee. People just completely freak the fark out.

In a BIG storm, we can get 18 inches. That's a 10-year storm. We have three 4WD vehicles and 3 "regular" vehicles. EVERYBODY up here has 4WD, though. Although most have those giant RAM Diesels. The one that handles snow the best is my Lesbian Assault Subaru Station Wagon (it's raised a couple inches), then my Dad's Nissan 4X4, followed by the Suzuki Sidekick (that thing is SICK in mud, though. Just point it and go). When the snow is a foot or less, our 1981 Datsun coupe drives like it's on rails. Those narrow tires slash through snow instead of riding on top of it. Great vehicle if snow isn't up to the hood. It also gets like 43 miles to the gallon. They need to make more of those. Our worst vehicle in the snow is our newest -- the 2007 Corolla. Not enough weight, and too much tire, so that thing slides all over the place. If we need to get somewhere far, the Corolla stays home.

We've always had little Japanese 4X4s. The parts are expensive, but you can get places the big trucks can't on the forest roads up here.

And that's with 1981 technology.  I'm wondering how much the modern version would get if it existed.

Unfortunately, This. When I take that car from here (at 7,000 feet) down to Phoenix, It gets almost 60. But there are no airbags, no crumple zones. It's just a hunk of steel that drives like a beast with great mileage, but it's not safe, by any means. I'd hate to hit an elk up here in it.
 
2013-02-09 05:08:25 PM  
Cars are better with airbags. Always. Unfortunately, that adds at least $1600 to the production price of the car now.

Good point, I didn't think of how a modern version would have to be built to meet modern safety standards.

I sell  cake,but was a bread man on long island 20 years ago last Friday the stores were rocking my route is up around Glen Cove  they had major electric problems during Sandy so lots of folks were lining up at the gas stations for fear of power outages. Most people make a last minute run to the liquor store so they can hole up by the fireplace with a scotch and milk. My biggest store had at least 50 people on line and waited while i delivered 2000$ worth of cake and left a hour later i saw these same people just  getting to the register to finalize there shopping. I got home and the snow dumped 30-36"  the first  2" was snowy ice and that made the late commuters get stranded and delayed the plowing.

I say this out of experience. I hit ice in 2009 and rolled my ScionTC. God, It was a beautiful car. When the back end started moving in the opposite side I was travelling, I saw a cliffside. I just said to myself, "Well, I guess this is how it ends." I wasn't scared, though. and that kind of bothers me. When I woke up in the helicopter, freezing my ass off, I said, "If I have scars from this I'm going to be so pissed off." I have the scars.

Everything is about self-preservation, but I was in the hospital for a month when my liver failed (trying to oxidize Effexor, which my psychiatrist was handing out like candy.) When I came out of my coma my doctor told me, "You almost died." My mom and dad were literally making funeral plans for me. I was ORANGE and they were going to put me on dialysis as a last measure, because my kidneys decided to take a vacation, too. That's weird. When I came out of the coma, I told my mom specifically that I was NOT to be buried. That bothers the crap out of me. I don't know why. I want to be cremated, but my ashes have to be thrown out somewhere ABOVE GROUND.

When I came around to full health, I put it in my Last Will and Testament.

I was like, umm. OK.

Hilarious! Dont forget to fill EVERY VESSEL CAPABLE OF HOLDING LIQUID with gas at the gas station!

On my way home from work thurs, I had to go to 3 gas stations before I found one that still had gas and even that was only 93 octane. I just needed gas for the car, not to fuel my generator for the next 10 years.

/Maybe fill those 10 gas cans AHEAD of time? MAYBE?

Yeah, but there may never ever ever be a power outage and then you're out all that money!
