Made the call

I just saw five snowflakes fall. That means it’s time to issue the official alert.

Bread and milk! Beer and diapers! DVDs and onion dip! Aooga! Aooga!

Pork out delayed

There’s about five inches of snow here in Raleigh N.C. For those of you in Minneapolis and such frozen spots, you may think we’re a bunch of weenies, but we’re just not used to this. Ice is what we put in our bourbon and branch water.

So, a few things are cancelled. Actually, a lot of things, including the Pork & Pinot event I wrote about earlier. It will be held Saturday, Feb. 6, assuming we dig out.

An informal survey of my Facebook friends yesterday showed that wine was as important to lay in as bread and milk for the advancing blizzard. Admittedly, a lot of my friends are sots, so I wasn’t sure it was an actual trend. Until I opened my News & Observer (Raleigh, N.C.) today. Several area wine shops had special stock-up-for-the-storm sales on Friday. I’m partial to champagne in the hot tub, myself. Read this trend here.
