Winter Storms and PETA Attacks

Hola y’all! Man, winter is just never going to end, huh? Oh I know it’s only February 4, but dammit, winter has been going on for months and months and months and I’m ready for it to be over. By the time this is posted, it will almost be time for our second winter storm in three days to hit. Of course the one on Sunday wasn’t supposed to happen.

As of late Saturday the weather “experts” were saying we would get “barely a dusting” of snow. By mid-morning this was our “dusting” …

By early afternoon the snow was still dusting away out there!

In the end we got somewhere around five inches of dusting. The weatherman didn’t even have the decency to be embarrassed at missing by that much. Just warned us that the roads were treacherous and to stay home if we didn’t have to go anywhere.

Luckily though it was just snow though and there wasn’t any sleet or freezing rain. Better than that, it was the really soft snow that doesn’t pack down. It was super easy to clear the car off and snow plows out on Sunday night and some salting left the roads in good shape on Monday. So, with a storm of indeterminate size coming tomorrow followed by bitterly cold weather and more snow on Thursday, Friday and maybe Saturday, I decided I should hit up Walmart. I put on my usual winter weather attire and headed out…

Needless to say there was some panic buying in Redneckville as many people were afraid they wouldn’t get their toast for breakfast this week …

It was pandemonium at the registers as every single lane was six or seven people deep.

And every GOT-DAMN person wanted a price match from the ads in the paper and then to either pay with exact change or by writing a check. Oh no, not “let the cashier auto print the check” either. They wanted to write it out themselves and then dig around for their driver’s license. The whole time I was just staring at my package of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Oreos.

They’re amazing y’all! Anyway, I spent more time in line than I did wandering around looking for the stuff I needed. When I finally made it through I was leaving the store when I realized that not only was there paparazzi outside, but some damn PETA protesters were there too. I was just about to show them my pound of hamburger meat that I bought when one of those PETA freaks attacked me and ruined by winter coat!!

Can you believe how these people behave? They have no social graces whatsoever! I should sue them not only for the cost of my dry cleaning bill, but for my pain and suffering.

It's bad enough that you have to suffer through a more than awful winter, but for PETA to attack you as well? That's just bullshit considering your love for dogs. Cheers Jayman!!

Matt-Man: IKR? Boomer the mutt that lives next door came running up to me yesterday wanting to play. Dogs know good people when they see them.
