Pre Flurry Fury
Let's all take a deep breath and relax. Northern Virginia is expecting a lot of snow this weekend. We have been advised to have 3 days worth of food in our homes. Check. I popped over to our local Safeway to get a box of golden raisins for my boss. She found a recipe in yesterday's newspaper she wanted to try, it involved cauliflower, curry and raisins. Guess everybody wanted to cook it too. When is a store ever sold out of cauliflower and golden raisins?
Upon entering the store I was checked by a shopping cart. Adjusting my basket I entered and exited almost as quickly. Carts were loaded for 30 days and 30 night worth of hibernation. People's eyes were wild and they were breathing heavily. It was a feral experience.
Here's my suggestions. Take what you need. Leave some for others. And maybe drop off a few
things for the Arlington Food Pantry. There's enough to go around.
More suggestions: let's all try and stay off the roads. Enjoy the snow and one another. Maybe bake a pie or start a blog!
