I've never been able to get this. The store shelves around here are totally devoid of milk and bread. I don't hardly drink much milk and I only use bread for toast and sandwiches. A loaf will last my wife and I for more than a week. Why in the hell do people stock up on just milk and bread before a snowstorm?

Should say why do people go full retard before a snow storm. There isnt a loaf of bread in OKC at the moment, and we are getting a whopping "up to an inch" . Gotta love media hype.

Dumbass southerners.

It's because it can be difficult to get to the grocery store in the next few days, so people push their normal shopping forward.

What you're seeing isn't everyone in the county buying milk, but rather a case study in just how low a grocery store's inventory really is.

Every time it snows south of the mason dixon line, a bunch of geniuses start threads criticizing people for not wanting their wives to drive on ice.

I agree, I've seen it up here too and I'll never figure it out. The longest I've been snowed in without being able to get down the road was maybe 24 hours after the end of a storm and that was over 30 inches of snow.

Not really worried, other than that.

Can you please stop telling me that I have a hobby of NOT collecting stamps? Seriously, I don't collect stamps. I don't mind that you collect stamps, and it's a fine hobby I'm sure. Please stop calling this thing I don't do, a hobby of mine.

I have yet to see a snow storm when I couldn't get to the store but I don't feel like going out to a cold truck for food when I could have bought it all two days ago.

That's all the transplants from the west that you're seeing on the news. The real Texans know to stay off the roads and avoid all the foreigners.

See a lot of them up here.

And every now and then you see one so bad, or an ice storm so bad, that the stores close down for lack of power and resupply.

There's one trusty corner store about half a mile away that is open 24/7 and I've never seen it closed. Even when the power went out they had one lamp by the register and a floodlight covering the store (not sure if they were being run off a battery or if there was a generator i didn't see/hear) and the cashier had a bag of money, a calculator, and a pen and paper.

There are two additional effects which haven't been mentioned:

1) Even if you aren't worried about the weather, you may be worried about people who are worried about the weather. If you don't beat them, you're out of milk for a few days regardless of snow. So, those purchases get pushed forward too.

2) Some people like to go grocery shopping before bad weather just so they can get on the internet and make fun of all the people they saw grocery shopping before bad weather.

No, but if you drink enough, you won't care that you're cold. The reason for bread is simple. In the event of a power outage, there are a number of people with electric stoves that won't be able to cook. Sammiches for everyone.

This is a southern thing. My sister lives in Richmond, so I know it gets crazy prior to snowfall.

In the north, we just go to the store whenever we need something. Unless you live in New York, in which case, you're stranded because the city workers take 4hr breaks during an 8hr shift.
