Washington Post: Why a looming storm makes us think we can eat all the junk food we want

Thursday night, a day before the storm was due to pound us with blizzard conditions, American University students Miranda Oliver and Ashley Sillaro were casually wheeling out of the Columbia Heights Target with two six-packs of Blue Moon and hard cider. These were backups, said Oliver, 21, in case the beer she’d bought just a day earlier ran out.

On that trip, she added, “I got like three things of ice cream. And I don’t even really like ice cream.”

“We were going to get an ice-cream cake,” added Sillaro, 20.
