Yesterday I went out to the store to get some milk and ground beef and a few other things. The store was nearly empty of customers, which I thought was strange with the big snowfall predicted.
Back at home, I started checking that I had all the ingredients to make lasagna. I got lasagna noodles a week ago, told the Artist I would be making lasagna (his favorite)… and then I got sick. For most of a week, I was barely up to heating soup on the stove. Lasagna? Forget it.
So now that I was more-or-less recovered, I intended to make the promised lasagna. Except I forgot to get mozzarella cheese. Dammit. I asked Alpha Geek to run up to the store and get me some.
Nearly two hours later, he returned. Apparently the ravening hordes descended on the grocery stores just after I left. He had to go to three different stores to find mozzarella.
But it’s a good thing I went yesterday, because overnight we got snow. And sleet. And ice. Strangely, the worst of it hit south of us. The Atlanta airport is closed because of all the snow. I was trying to remember if my buddy Val is traveling this week. Hope you’re not stranded somewhere, dude.
Schools went from a two-hour delay to closed for the day. Even the colleges are all closed. I guess I get another day to recover from the cold.
