Should I Spend Donuts On the Returning Little Lady Justice, 5 Corners, or Capital City Capitol Building w/ Rose Quimby?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Business as usual in our pocket-sized towns.  After a short hiatus, TSTO is back with an all-new mini-event in our towns, State of Despair! Of course, an all-new mini-event gives EA an excuse to stock our stores with returning premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the returning Little Lady Justice, Five Corners or Rose Quimby to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Friday Filler – State of Despair Turns Into State of Joy

Thank Grog It’s  Firday,

So, we here on the West Coast know that you folks from colder climates are likely to make fun of all of the news of our “Snow-Ma-Geddon” (not to be confused with Rhiannon Giddens, the absolutely stunning folk/roots singer).  Not sure why my mind jumped to that…but I have had so little sleep, and so much added stress this week, that my brain (what is left at this advanced age) is in free-fall (no…not the Tom Petty song).  But, I digress…

This week, right in the final stages of planning our huge FUNdraiser for my Rotary club…and pulling 16-hour days, 7 days a week for the last 4 weeks, we got hit with what they are calling a “100 year snow event.”  It was impressively insane…but, anyone my age remembers a handful of “snow events” bigger than this one.  We did get almost 2 feet…really fast ( we got 4′ in 1969).  And it was the kind of heavy, wet snow that breaks trees…and power poles…and all sorts of other stuff.

It’s the kind of snow that had all of the West Coast folks going, “Oh…isn’t it beautiful!  I hope we get a Snow Day!” after a few hours, but then, “OH DEAR GOD…PLEASE LET IT MELT!! So they can turn the electricity and cable back on!” after three days of more snow…freezing rain…and biting wind.

And by Wednesday night…it was obvious…we had to postpone the event. So there were 225 people to be informed. Catering cancelled. Everything put on hold. And boxes and boxed of auction items stacked up in my family room.

But then…things got weirdly joyful.
