Ed Gryzb did what needed to be done this morning.
Hardy New Englander Annette Fox had some French toast a la snow this morning in Uxbridge. She adds:
10 ish inches and no power, no problem.

OK, I laugh at all those folks buying milk and bread because of a storm, but I'm now out of milk and bread. Damn.
Kim snapped her French Toast Alert this morning.
My son and I did a bunch of work this morning getting ready for the storm and decided we'd go to the Groveland Diner for lunch before things got ridiculously bad. At the diner, I kid you not.... they are selling Blizzard Survival Kits for $6.99. A loaf of bread, a dozen eggs, and a half gallon of milk. And people were buying them! It was hysterical to sit there eating my lunch, and watching folks come in out of the snow to go home with a take out order of lunch AND the survival kit. The only things missing are a roll of toilet paper and a bottle of vodka.
Those messages you hear on WBUR that SOUND like commercials really aren't. They actual nomenclature is "underwriting messages". On Tuesday, midway between a past snowstorm and one-to-come, WBUR aired one for the upscale grocery vendor, Trader Joe's. The content: "get all the makings you need for the best French Toast ever at Trader Joe's." Hmmm...does somebody there read the UH?
The price of road salt went up $20 a ton over last year for the town, which, like many of its southeastern neighbors, contracts with Eastern Minerals Inc. in Chelsea.
With money being an issue for most citys and towns how is this going to affect the quality of service we all recieve? Will we see more situations like last years first storm of the year regionwide gridlock?
