We dont call it "stocking up", we call it Thursday.

I never understand people who stock up on toilet paper before a blizzard. How much TP do these people use? Do they normally wait until they are on the last roll to buy more? I stock up on booze because I know how much more I will potentially consume if I have extra days off of work. I don't ever really worry about running out of booze any other time because there's this place called a "bar" I can go to if the roads are clear. I stock up on TP when it's on sale, whether I need it or not. Because someday I'll need it, and won't be able to make it to the bar in time to use theirs.

On the west coast it seems most people just call their dealer when a storm is coming in.

...a boy, and a douche at that.

A woman, and one who happens to like things you don't. The nerve of me.

How dare you!

LargeCanine: I already have beer, wine and booze and stock up on meat, eggs, fruit, dairy and herbs. I have makings for bread. I eat well during storms, have time to bake and cook. Hmmmm... french toast and bacon for breakfast, chicken egg foo young for lunch. Roast pork, bread, snap peas, apple crisp for dinner tomorrow.

Yep, you just made me hungry. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow !

/Thirsty too !
//Cheers !!

Here in Florida we stock up on seeds, commemorative plates, and reverse mortgages.

Some people like to party, others like to make french toast.

From what I remember from college, the amount of snowfall predicts how much beer to stock.  Yellow snow doesn't make itself.

In fact the original Tweet was in yellow snow.  The 140 character limit was based on the record sentence length before frostbite.

What? Here on the east coast, we don't need to stock up, we're prepared all the time for tommorow with a good supply of beer, wine, and weed.

Course maybe we're making a distinction between American and Canadian here.

cameroncrazy1984: MaudlinMutantMollusk: I still can't quite grasp this. I mean, I live in California, and a foot of snow where I live means I still don't have a good excuse to call in

/all y'all whimpy, or what?

I doubt in CA you ever get a foot of snow in an hour.

Someone's never been to Truckee or Donner Pass, I see.

I live on the East Coast, and my wife and I definitely value stocking liquor over that "food" crap the subby listed, whatever the f*ck that stuff is about.

And if there's that much snow, you don't need toilet paper. You just get a bucket of snow, use a handful to wipe your ass, and then toss it in the toilet.

/I've never done the snow bit described above, but I could see it working 'in a pinch', if you know what I mean
