Where's the Beef???
Tuesday evening I didn't have the TV on and it had rained all day. I didn't know we had a line of storms moving our way and they were moving at about 55 mph and that we were under a severe T-storm warning. This was at 10 p.m. and I heard that wind roaring towards us. It nearly scared all the meanness out of me. We could hear the small hail hitting the side of the cabin along with the wind and rain. I looked out and the sheets of rain were going straight across. I expected to see trees and anything else flying by at any time. We were lucky though. There are several trees of our neighbors that didn't stand up to the wind. This was the thing all over the state and other states too. The tree clean up crews will be busy now! I'm just thankful it wasn't worse. Then it did the big dive in temperature and flash froze all that rain.
We have a new Kroger store that opened on Wednesday morning. They were giving 5 lbs. of ground beef to the first 500 customers. My husband said I should go. It was cold and I sure hated to get out of bed but I went. It opened at 0800. I got there about 0810 and I never saw such a mess of people! You would have thought they were giving away $5,000 instead of 5 lbs. of ground beef! And it was cold! The line was still filing in at 10 after and the parking lot was full with the Taco Bell parking lot also full. I just kept driving and went to the other Kroger to get what I had on my list. They are also giving away some other things which you are registered for when you use your Kroger Plus card. I went up today and managed to find a place to park. They have a salad bar and an olive bar. Well, I had never seen an olive bar before, so I learned what an olive bar is.
