I LOVE that storm prep in New England includes the phrase "I went to the packie..."

I think I've heard that phrase about 20 times today!! :)

It's not looking good for us here... schools already canceled for us tomorrow (yeah!!) This should be interesting...

  • OMG is that snow? INCHES? Ugh, I'd throw myself into the ocean.

    Good luck all. Take care. Stay safe.

  • LOL I didn't even think to google. Now it all makes sense. Anything that keeps you warm :)

  • Oh, got it! The liquor store. I never heard that word before. Isn't it interesting the different expressions that come up from far-flung regions of the country?

    Going to the packie would make a storm like that easier to handle. Stay warm.

  • I assume that is the store?
    I have lived in blizzard country and major snow country. I am sure you know how to take of yourselves but my best wishes for your safety and comfort and that it doesn't last too long.

  • At least it's not displayed as feet!
    And I kinda get what the phrase means, after the explanation. Maybe I should start using it here to see who gets it.
