My trip to the Market

How can one little four-letter word cause so much ruckus at the store. It's going to SNOW tonight, tomorrow, tomorrow night, and again a little on Wednesday. The local weather says up to six inches, but the Weather Channel is saying a foot. Well okay, I can understand twelve inches of snow causing people to panic and head to the grocery store.

I stopped by there on the way home from work. We had just bought groceries last Thursday, but I wanted to pick up a few items I had forgotten. Big mistake. I drove through the parking lot one time and there were NO places to park! That's the first time I have ever seen that happen. I finally found a spot way over in the CVS parking area.

I walked into the store and there were NO shopping carts! Okay, I didn't need much, I could just shop with one of those baskets that you carry. You know what? I got the last one of those. Amazing. The place was packed and I weaved my way through praying they would have everything I needed.

I got up to the front to get in line to check-out and of course, the line was long. I was able to get into the Express Lane, but even it was pretty busy.

I made it out with everything I needed. I'm home and all that is left to wait for the snow to start falling. I can't wait.
