Bring it, Sandy!
The sunny girl and I hit our local grocery store one last time before we began to seriously hunker down and wait out Hurricane Sandy. We were already bored and stir-crazy, and felt the need to buy those last minute emergency supplies that would help ensure that we will make it through the storm unscathed -- staples like brownie mix, potato chips, and wine.
We did notice that our fellow citizens had emptied certain key shelves . . . .
While the store still had water in gallon jugs, there is no more individually bottled water to be had.
Do you need AA batteries? You're in luck! Also available: AAA, 9V, and C batteries. But if your flashlights and lanterns take D batteries, you are so screwed.
And as it turns out, you are also screwed if you need tortilla chips. Apparently nachos, and chips with salsa, are necessities for sheltering in place. Good thing the sunny girl and I snagged the very last bag of Tostitos Scoops in the store.
Because that would have been a catastrophe.
