When we lived on the east coast, we affectionately called bread, milk, and eggs the three whites, and it is slightly humorous to watch those items disappear from the shelves when one inch of snow is predicted. On the other hand, we experienced a stunning and unexpected snowstorm that dropped nearly two feet of snow on the Mid-Atlantic states one winter night that really did bring our normally mild-weathered former city to a standstill, so maybe the people who ran to the store weren't so crazy after all.

Seriously though, we always want hot cocoa after shoveling, and the best hot cocoa does not result from mixing a brown powder into a cup of boiling water. It requires home-made dark chocolate sauce and real milk, plus maybe a bit of whipped cream. And, oh boy, is it worth the effort and the run to the store!

And I always make a loaf of bread when a big storm is headed our way. When we're out shoveling the neighborhood, a quick lunch of grilled cheese and soup is always welcome. I bet if you looked down the Campbell's display, you'd find that all the cream of tomato is gone, too.

Eggs are understandable, too. They're a perishable item that many families tend to buy regularly, just like milk and bread, so if you're headed to the store anyway, it's easy enough to pick up a carton.

Now, toilet paper I do not understand. Who runs out of toilet paper in two days? I've got enough toilet paper in my linen closet to last a month, and it's not like I try to stock up. I just buy the big package at Target, and I'm good to go for weeks.

My son is going to be super bummed out if he doesn't get a snow day out of this. I think I will be too, to be honest! lol! My concern is that it's going to be ok in the morning but worse at the end of the day, and I would much rather just stay home.

The City of Centennial is already calling for delays, which I think is just a bit early, but we shall see.

The storm system is starting to fall apart a bit. Don't be surprised if we end up on the low end of the precipitation estimates.

I'm on 19th street looking out my window at work. Pretty much weak sauce so far, but apparently it's supposed to pick up this afternoon and overnight.

I'm probably going to leave at 1:30 and get ahead of everybody else leaving downtown to head south.

It's snowing here in West Lakewood decently. I did hear them say the worst is coming this afternoon/evening/all night. I went back to store this morning to get eggs/milk but all milk was gone. I still have half a gallon so I'll be fine. I did pick up some chocolate chip cookies to make and also I'll make fresh hot chocolate tomorrow am for the bf.

It's been supposed to "pick up" for days now. I think it just plain fizzled. JMO! We'll see.

They are still saying 7 to 13 inches in the NWS alert. I think it was just late coming in but I'm not sure it's going to fizzle.

My son was very disappointed this morning but is now hoping he'll get his snow day tomorrow.
