what the hell?? i was watching tv w/ the 'ol man... and we got a lil hankerin' for some ice cream. so i hop into the car and truck my voluptuous ice cream lovin ass to the local friendly's. THEY WERE FRIGGIN" CLOSED!!!!! at 9 pm. because of the "winter storm", the last leaving waiter tells me. and the convience store down the road. same story. why is it that if we get a lil dusting of snow, everyone acts like it's a blizzard coming? they buy all the bread and milk off the shelves, run to home depot and buy up all the shovels, salt, and sand. and they are so quick to cancel school, too, even before seeing how the night goes. we got about 1/4" before and some freezing rain going on now. i suppose the media doesn't help. the fox NY news was just on... proclaiming it "WINTER STORM '07". are they for real? if we get any more than 3 inches, they'd probably call a state of emergency!!
so... end to my rant... we ended up w/ wawa's butter pecan. for someone jones-ing a peanut butter cup sundae with cookies and cream... it just wasn't the same!
