We get spring when Cobra says so. No exceptions.
The snow is melting now; it wasn’t doing much last night, other than sticking around and causing problems. If I recall correctly, we were hit with a massive storm around this time last year and it was bad enough where I couldn’t get out of my driveway. This one wasn’t awful, but it was bad enough.
But remember: climate change and the science behind it aren’t a thing! 🙄
The Oshkosh Shopko has just started their liquidation, so the selection is still fairly good. I’m thinking of heading back there and grabbing a couple of reusable bags, as souvenirs of sorts. We’re seeing another retail company going under; soon enough it’ll be completely forgotten. As I’ve said before, this is depressing. I can’t help but wonder how long it will be before the malls become unprofitable and start to shutter. The mall back in NC has changed hands and is being run by a different company; the new ownership has said that there will be changes. The local mall is still fairly profitable; when I worked there four years ago, the weekends were so busy you couldn’t breathe. Weekdays in the summer were busy, too. It only really slowed down in autumn.
But I don’t know how long that will last. It’s easier and cheaper to shop online now; brick and mortar stores are having a helluva time keeping up with Amazon. I remember one of my coworkers at Walmart, saying that she wasn’t concerned about job security, since Walmart would always be around. People would always need groceries and toilet paper, she said, so Walmart wasn’t going anywhere.
Now I’m not so sure about that.
