Typical Rochester winter. We have taken over the dubious distinction of being the snowiest major city in the country.

You mean Rochester had overtaken Buffalo for that dubious honor?

Sent you a PM yesterday.

I noticed the same run here on outside water spigot covers when freezing weather is predicted.

They are reusable

Ryan, I'm pretty sure the milk/bread/eggs thing is just a St. Louis thing. I don't know if any other city does that when snow is called for.

I dont understand it... A) the last time I can remember being "snowed in" for more than 24 hours was Feb of 82. (14" of thundersnow) and B) what are all these people planning on doing? Living on french toast?

Maybe it's from my Upstate NY past, but stocking up on staples is/was a getting ready for being snowed in thing.

Getting a full tank of fuel in your vehicle is another.
