empty shelves

Wesley Kosher had 3 containers of milk left at 6:30 p.m. That is it. 3.

There were no more 5 pound bags of sugar. Not one.

10 inches is a lot of snow.

And Purim is next week.

So I guess everyone is thankful for the snowday to catch up on their Purim baking.

But here in Brooklyn North, by the afternoon the roads are usually clear.

So who is betting that it'll only be 4 inches? Or wet snow?

It's now 10 p.m. and nary a flake in sight.

I hope there is a snow day- I don't have any snacks for the kids to take to school.

And if it is a snow day, this household will be awoken at dawn, as one child gallops into the kitchen, and listens to the school automated message on Speaker. So those of us still sleeping can wake up at 6 a.m. to be told we don't have to wake up early. How does he do that?

Here's to wishing for lotsa snow!

ah, the kosher mall?

Yep. The place where chassidish teenagers can strut around in all their glory, like they own the place, in a manner quite reminiscent of the way non-jewish teenagers strut around palisades mall.
Either way, they had lots of flour, milk and all the other stuff when I went yesterday.
