I made the mistake

Of going to the Comm Ave Shaw's on the way home today for butter. All the produce, chips, and yogurt were picked bare, and there were lines 8 deep at every register.

Based on the contents of people's baskets (chips, ice cream, burrito wraps, soda), I think everyone in the store planned on riding out the storm by smoking a bowl.

Roche Bros Burlington

I went to Roche Bros in Burlington last night. No lines, fully stocked shelves. I got everything I wanted, plus a bunch of stuff I didn't know I wanted. The milk, bread, and eggs were all stocked as was the water aisle. I figured market basket would be where the hysteria was so popped over there since it never seems busy.

This type of hysteria doesnt

This type of hysteria doesnt seem to exist in central jersey.

Were only supposed to get 6-12 inches, but the supermarket I visited at 11pm tonight looked as stocked as always.

And Sandy? I took a picture the day before Sandy hit.....stocked to the brims.

Shopping cart glee

I walked about before the real storm and included a swing to the Truman Parkway S&S. My young men had informed me they were out of dandruff shampoo. Hey, if college guys are grooming, I'll play.

A very elderly couple was leaving the store with a pretty full cart. She looked me in the eye and actually cackled. With a big grin, she said, "I left you SOME food."

All fun and funny until the blizzard, eh?

Next door, Lenk's booze had 11-inch letters, black on yellow, LET IT SNOW! It's probably great for biz, eh?
