      I think it is a reference to the wintertime phenomenon of folks buying up all the bread and milk when snow is predicted around here – the local joke used to be that “Lyin’ Bob” Caldwell , the WLOS weatherman, would get a kickback from “Uncle Bob” Ingle of Ingle’s Markets, for predicting snow and making everyone run out and buy bread and milk….

        That is really funny. Man, that goes way back.

          Yes, that is from awhile ago – They called Mr. Caldwell “Lyin’ Bob” because WLOS never seemed to hit the snow forecasts right back then. I reckon Mr. Caldwell is still living – I forget when he retired from WLOS – Mr. Ingle passed away a few years ago.
