    like just before Thanksgiving, only worse. And it wasn't just one store; it apparently was all of them. The great stumbling herd wasn't ready for 10+ inches of snow, LOL. It seems the average pantry is in rather poor shape.

    But yeah , I will wager Merlin saw no Mormons at the grocery store...
    Don't ask me how one identifies a Mormon in public.
    In private its all about the underware...

    Clearing out the stores over less than a foot of snow??

    ...they do know that you can just move the snow out of the way, right?

    Well, I witnessed this mob scene at 2 PM on a workday afternoon. Where'd they all come from!? Of course, I was there to buy just a half gallon of milk and a bottle of wine. I'm ready for the snow. I'd have stayed home if I'd been a visionary.

    That's a regular occurrence in the NE states before any predicted snowfall. New Englanders used to be a hearty bunch but not any more! They all turn into scared quivering snowflakes when Mother Nature comes a callin'!

    Can't say I've ever seen this up here, even during the big Ice Storm. I'd be out there fucking with them if I could. Shopping out of other people's baskets and such. Load up a basket and just walk around the store, then put some of it back on the wrong shelves.

    Stupid people bring out the asshole in me.

    Same shit here, can't survive one nite without a $300 dollar trip to grocery store. Ever look at what they buy for their couch potato session, its a wonder they aren't dead already.

    If people are that triggered by the weather channel, you can see why they get so triggered watching CNN or any of the other mom outlets.
    Someone needs to hack the airwaves of all the media outlets except fox. Make an announcement that the end is near because of a virus and the only way to save yourselves is to eat tide pods, lots of them.

    I normally shop late, like after 10pm. Less people running around with germs to get me sick..

    I always keep well stocked with canned yams and saurkraut just to avoid this panic buying before a storm.

    Speaking of Super prepping where's Mr. Cafe Bustelo at these days? My guess is slurping up lots of diesel fuel through a bilge rag.

    Sadly, I think Mr. Coffee had some serious health issues. He sort of faded away on here, not sure of what happened.
    Hope he is just taking a break and not something else.
