It snowed, in Seattle! People are acting like it's an emergency out there. Grocery stores have been cleared out. I'm told there's no milk or water left on the shelves anywhere. Because where in god's name can you find water during a snow storm? Folks are stocking up on emergency tomatoes, antique stationary in case email goes down, and there are reports of looting.

PCC is still fully stocked, it's too expensive even for the looters.

What's the store you're referring to? I don't remember hearing about a store like that there, but I have heard of that out west where it gets really cold in the winter.

LOL! Here in the east people stock up on milk, bread, butter and eggs. Guess a snow storm makes people crave French toast.

I prefer Ralphs because of their self-checkout. I want to get in and out as fast as possible. I really hate grocery stores and the freakish women shoppers.

They've experimented with them for years (particularly the full-cart scanners), they just never became widespread.
