I was gladdened to see maybe my incessant harping about having some emergency supplies on hand seems to have finally sunk into The Wifely Unit’s thought process a little while ago.
I had been over in Portland doing some things and when I got home this afternoon she was dressed and ready to hit the door the minute I got back.
She wanted to get to the store and pick up enough stuff to get through next week.
It’s a small miracle I’m tellin’ ya!
She normally shops from Tuesday to fucking Tuesday and it drives me nuts.
She finally figured out that she might have to venture out in the cold and snow just to go get some shit we should have on hand anyway and thought maybe going now BEFORE it gets nasty might just be prudent.
Good on her.
Not only for finally looking past the end of her nose for once but also for actually doing it and not waiting and making me do it because she couldn’t get her fucking car out of the driveway.
I’m sure she saw what would be coming her way if that was to come to pass.
She hates me to go shopping because I buy shit she thinks we don’t need.
It’s supposed to start in tonight, if you haven’t yet, NOW would be a good time to get your ass to the store. Running out of asswipe when there is a blizzard going on just doesn’t sound like a good time to me for some reason.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, proud of my oldest daughter too. I had to stop at her place to look at the younger daughters POS car that took a shit earlier in the week. The alternator is out and it’s a toss up on whether or not the vehicle is worth dumping any money into so she is going to weigh her options.
The oldest daughter had just returned from the grocery store doing the same thing as the wife.
The wife just walked in the door and told me there wasn’t a single shopping cart left in the rack at the Wally World she went to. The place is packed.
Guaranteed there will be stupid fucks there tomorrow out in the mess that is coming. There is a Winter Storm Warning for our immediate area in effect right this minute and the rain just started. It’s currently 36 degrees and the sun is going down as I type. There will be snow here shortly.
