to stock up on food. There a big huge snow storm coming. They are predicting 5-10 inches by tomorrow night. http://www.weather.com/maps/maptype/...=wxcenter_maps
Look at how big that storm is!
Anyhow, I knew when I parked at the far end of the lot that folks had the same idea I did. Stock up so you don't have to go out in the blizzard.
I get in the store and have to go back out and grab a cart from the lot. The store was packed.
I get all my stuff, and I'm walking toward the Silk. I pass the meat coolers and I hear this woman ask her husband "well what the hell are we gonna eat?"
I glance over and notice that the coolers are almost bare. I get my Silk and keep walking, noticing that all the milk is almost gone, and the cheese and eggs are in short supply. Bread was slim pickins too (no problem there because I make my own anyhow).
This tickled me. I don't know that proud is the right word, more like relieved that I had plenty of good food in my cart and I wasn't fretting about anything not being there. I had plenty of food choices..so much that if I wanted more I could go back and get it. And I can make many many meals with what I had bought.
Just wanted to share. I've never really felt such a difference between me and the other folks in the grocery store, although I know there is one. But the difference is good. No, it's not just good. It's grand!
I feel wise for some reason.
Then I got to thinking on my way home, they are really going to be lost when the food supply (that is animals or comes from animals) gets so tainted that it's not edible anymore (this is what I've believed for a long time is going to happen and is currently slowly happening). Guess they'll have to learn a new way to shop at the grocery store.
