French Toast Alert!


For some inexplicable reason, whenever snow’s coming there’s a mad last-minute rush on milk, eggs and bread at all the grocery stores. It’s so widespread, unexplainable and quirky-funny that Adam of UniversalHub invented the French Toast Alert system for it. Today’s expected 12+ inches of snow call for a French Toast Alert level of Orange.

And what did I realize I was out of this morning when I reached for my breakfast cereal?

Lucky me, I got to stand in some truly epic lines while waiting to check out my milk and eggs. (Thankfully I already had bread.) The Clarendon Hill Foodmaster in Somerville was completely mobbed, way worse than the Saturday morning crowds. And in everyone’s hands were indeed milk, eggs and bread. Unbelievable!
