I just came home from assorted errands and man, it’s CRAZY out there. This new storm will come with even stronger winds, so the weather forecasters are telling people to prepare for power failures. Well, that’s a classic recipe for panic!
The supermarket parking lot is so crowded, people are blocking in the other cars. I mean, there is not one single parking spot left. People have filled the entire shopping center lot, and that of the nearby Applebee’s. It’s just plain nuts.
My tank was on empty, so I had to get gas. (Another one of the Dad-isms: “Make sure you have a full tank when you drive in the snow, it’ll give you traction.”) I filled up, then crawled home the half-mile or so in heavy traffic.
