What do you get when you're stockpiling before a storm?

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

All things flammable- alcohol, gasoline, sour diesel.

I've been working a good deal in the northern suburbs of Chicago these past two months, coincidentally near several Binny's locations. The City of Middleton could take two weeks to plow out my road and I'd still have booze to spare.

On the way home:

1.75 of whiskey
6 pack PBR tall boys
Frozen pizza
Wrapping paper

This should keep me busy for the next two days or so.

Lots and lots of condoms.

They do tend to keep the hand, clothing and walls cleaner.

A few days early, but I just got back from my monthly grocery run. Didn't want to have to fight through the remnants of snow at the end of the week. However it appears there were others with the same thought as Woodman's was more busy than usual.

I don't know that anything special needs to be stockpiled before a storm; no one is snowed in for long. But I did buy extra candy ( butter rum, sour cherry balls, cinnamon red hots ), and treats for the dog.

Canned soup, frozen food, juice drinks. Pretty much the same stuff I have most nights.

Copps was crazy this afternoon. I was in the 15 or less lane at checkout. The guy two ahead in line had a liter of Mr Boston's Vodka, a liter of Korbel brandy, and two bottles of Korbel champaign. The nice elderly lady in front of me in line had a pumpkin pie, Cool Whip, and an 18 pack of toilet paper. I had bananas, deli turkey, a loaf of Brownberry bread, hummus, chips, and deli roasted chicken. The guy behind me had a gallon of OJ, a 750ml of Absolut, a newspaper, a whole raw chicken, garlic, a spatula, and rice cakes.

I got my beer at Steve's.

I did all my Christmas shopping today. I didn't think I'd finish in one shot, but I managed. Didn't buy myself anything special for the storm of the century, but I'm worried about the six-pack of oddball beers and box of stinky cheeses I got from Brennan's. If I get snowed in, I might plow into the Pig's Ass Porter and aged brick and get sucked into a second round of Christmas shopping.

As for necessities, Camel Lights, Leinenkugel's Original, Sour Patch Kids, Traditional Medium Buffalo Wing Street wings, Marzetti's Chunky Blue Cheese dressing, Orville Redenbacker's Tender White popcorn, a pound of butter, a can of diced tomatoes, a pound of hamburger, yellow onions, a green pepper, green onions, two habeneros, a can of kidney beans, fresh garlic and a slow cooker.

The best way to eat fresh chili is topped with some grated sharp cheddar cheese and raw, diced yellow onion.
