Hope you made it to the grocery store before hand as you may be "in-place" til Monday.
Once a wintery blast hit my Ferndale home back in 1981 and the wind and the snow/drifts
like overnight had me cut-off from going anywhere for days. The Krinks pantry back in those
days wasn't stocked at all and all that was in the refrigerator was condiments. Day 2 of being
stranded I had nothing else to do but walk 2 miles into town and buy some food at a store.
Once I could walk to a road that was plowed a guy in a pickup truck took me to the store
which was a big help. After filling up a "gunny sack" of groceries I left the store and another
kind person gave me a ride to my unplowed road. That mile and a half walk with a heavy
gunny sack of groceries over my shoulder walking on a snow covered road and climbing across
snow drifts will never be forgotten. When I got in the door of my home I think I had Oreo cookies
for dinner.
