Snow DAY.. Why the need to spend money?

January 28th, 2009 at 08:09 am

Oh so is it me or do you notice how people flood to big name wholesalers and supermarkets and spend money on food and items that they may not need just at the mere mention of SNOW? I cannot fathom the idea that people are so quick to run and spend money simply because of snow. Now i will understand if these people really needed the things they were buying..But some of them are are just so clueless about consumer buying behavior and the tricks and subliminal messages that drives them to buy unnecessary things...
People, smarten up!! SNOW has been coming for visits every winter since the beginning of time..
Get what you need... stay home on a snow day and just relax..
I will stop snowing, we will get out the house, and life will resume again!!

    I know around here big snowstorm forecasts bring up memories of the blizzard of 78 where people were trapped in their home for over a week and many ran out of food. I notice the bread and milk thing with the older generations, but not the younger ones.

    We were stuck in our house for a week in the blizzard of 93 with no electricity , no heat and no running water. I walked thru the snow to the nearest store to buy food.

    i am sure the majority of people have atleast enough food to get them through a week!

    I see this especially with elderly people. I'm guessing they are just pushing forward their regular shopping day so as not to have to drive or walk in the snow. They must really be extremely careful with their cars and bodies, as one little slip could lead to life in a nursing home or the loss of a car that they might never be able to replace. They are taking care of what they have. I think they are being smart.
