Let’s All Run to the Store and Stock Up on Sunblock!

A few more peaceful days until panic starts setting in with the weekend forecast.

What if we all acted like we do with an impending snowstorm when we knew it’d be sunny the next day?

That’d be a bit strange but is it any stranger than stocking up on French toast supplies ahead of a storm?

If we did act like that, we’d all have been complaining for the last couple days about how the stores are all out of SPF-20 sunblock.

If we did act like that, we’d have already been to the store to get our bottles of Coppertone in anticipation of a day like today.

Ahead of this weekend’s probable winter storm, we’re being treated to some nice early-winter weather. And today will be no exception.
