Snow Prep – North vs. South



This first photo is a nod to all my Yankee friends who are prepping for “Nemo” the huge blizzard hitting the Northeast today.

This photo  is how I prepped for a Southern “snowstorm” 3 weeks ago that left us with .5 inches.

What’s pathetic is not that I hit the donut aisle in the gas station (that’s where the DD’s are here, not their own fancy buildings except for one -30 min. away). What’s pathetic is at the end of January, they still have Xmas boxes because they didn’t sell enough donuts to change the box.

Okay. I’ll be honest. What’s really pathetic is that I filled the box with a double layer. I endured the stares of people trying to pay for gas and get cigarettes, the smirky laughter of the man behind the register as if he’s never sold 24 DD donuts before.

Forget them all. All they have is bread and milk. For what?  Peanut butter and jelly or french toast? Not us. We go all the way, baby!

We built a nice fire, had a great dinner with friends, and left the box open the rest of the evening… made it through breakfast and just like the snow that fell, nothing left by 10am.

    Very cute… and very true. Please don’t tell me there isn’t a Krispy Kreme near you! What a crime. This is where they started that company. We Southerners do love our donuts… but when there is a threat of snow, bread and milk goes first. Personally I bring in some firewood and buy the makings for a great pizza!

      Of COURSE there’s 100000 KK’s near us – but with only 2 DD’s in driving distance, I went out of the way to get 2 dozen just for the snow. I should have written that I eat donuts like 1 time a month maybe, so it was a real treat!

    The DD is minutes from my house. The KK is one minute away. I did not grow up with DD therefore I do not appreciate i do the KK. However…I love the DD coffee and hate KK’s. So my perfect world is a sublime mix of both.
