Here is Northern Virginia, panicking before a snowstorm is our major winter sport.
The grocery stores are cleared out.
Mr. Hunting Creek stopped at Trader Joe's yesterday afternoon and reported that the meat aisle was picked clean (except for filet mignon and prime ribs) and there was no bread! None! or onions, or dog food. Plenty of vegetables though. But no low fat milk. Jack Shafer of Slate posted a picture showing that vegetables were cleaned out at his Safeway.Except for mushrooms. I guess those don't go in Super Bowl Chili.
All of the snow shovels are sold out. (I always wonder - don't these people already have snow shovels? It does snow every year. We've had ours since 1990. They last a long time.)
It hasn't started yet, but we are ready. Bring on the hot chocolate!
