We California transplants have been waiting for this for a LONG time. For the last 10 years we've been stocking up on our very occasional visits to the West Coast and begging and pleading with friends and family coming from California to bring a stock of all our essential items. It's funny because while putting together my all-things-mom binder, I actually made a Trader Joe's shopping list for those rare occasions.
And speaking of Californians living in Wisconsin, I had to drive home from co-op today - along many miles of country roads - through the worst slush and sleet (with plenty of lightning to keep things interesting) I've ever driven through. It was 65 degrees two days ago and suddenly we're down to 34 degrees and weather alternating between rain and ice. Ugh.
