Hurricane coming,, supposed to cause some wind issues here.<br>
Went to the store tonight to get the essentials.<br>
The store was stripped clean, nothing of interest left as you walked through, bread shelves empty, milk shelves empty, almost no eggs etc...<br>
There was some almond silk left, so I got that. was starting to worry, then I turned the corner to the veggie isle,, it was full, so much to choose from.<br>
Got everything I needed just as if it was going to be a perfect weekend.<br><br>
Not sure what people are thinking when they fight over meat that is going to go bad if the power goes out, but I suppose that is not my concern.<br>
Woman behind me at the checkout sees all the veggies and the almond silk, makes a comment about how sad it is that there is no food left, and how we are forced to buy veggies instead.<br>
I thought about a few comments that I could come back with, but I settled on, I know, I have no clue what to do with this stuff but Ive heard from friends that in the case of an emergency you can actually eat it and live.<br><br>
She says, maybe for a day or so, but not for long....<br><br>
So much choice left after the stores have been depleted.. almost says something about society if you ask me.

I think at one point in our lives, most of us thought that way too. I doubt she will ever turn, but if she does, I feel bad that all this time has been wasted. Just like how I feel bad I didn't know for the first 16.5 years of my life.

It really is a sad commentary on our society. I hope many more begin to see the produce aisle in the way we all came around to seeing it... real, honest, filling, sustaining, tasty <b>food</b>!

Wow, that is the dumbest story. Enjoy your rotting steaks and hot dogs when the power goes out I guess <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:">

They should grill their meat outside and watch the hurricane like it's a football game and then "get some sense knocked into their heads"

I agree about the woman being clueless. I was wondering how much veg food you could buy with out electricity? I know canned beans would be awesome and fruit and veggies could last a few days. I can't think of anything else except junk food. Just thought of all types of nuts and also peanut butter sandwiches. wow, I guess there is a lot. What else?
