DALLAS — When it comes to winter storms, there are certain behaviors you can count on: bonehead drivers and bone-dry store shelves.
Bread and milk are the staple foods for hoarding. It doesn't matter how short or how long the weather event is - these two things are the first to go.
On Sunday, the checkout line near you had a long line of carts at every register. And back in 2013, during that cobblestone ice, the bread shelves were empty. That's not much of a selection between wheat or white!
We're not really sure why bread and milk are the first to go. Milk sours, and you know what bread becomes after a while. But you can bet there will be a run on this stuff the next time the ice comes.
Here's an idea, just stock-up now on Twinkies and SPAM. That'll last you a few years. Or decades, if not centuries.
