Let it snow: Part II

So, a few inches shuts down the city of Seattle. But a few feet in Spokaloo? No prob for that plucky place. (Official motto: The biggest city between Seattle and Minneapolis. Unofficial motto: At least we're not Tacoma!) That pic was taken Thursday morning in my BFF's front yard.

I remember epic dumps while living in the Inland Empire, where people would cross country ski around town. One winter, we couldn't even see the top of the car because the snow banks were so high. A white Christmas was almost always assured.

It was all those years of dealing with snow that taught me the value of having a well-stocked pantry. I can cook for a week without going to the store. So, what's in your cupboard?

It's true that the whole city was shut down, but the Elk stayed open and was packed all day and night.

I've been stocking up on flour...maybe not so much from a fear of eeather, but the prices have been dropping like a rock. Right now I have thirty pounds of Gold Medal all purpose in the cupboard that I paid $3 for each five pounder. That should keep me in ciabatta for a while!

Wait - what I meant was two five-pounders for $3!
