Survived my first experience with pre-*pocalypse shopping last night. The shopping itself wasn’t actually all that bad – we knew what we were getting into, and apparently so did most other people; it was definitely unusually busy, but people weren’t being unusually obnoxious – and it was amusing to see the many empty shelves where the store had been cleared out. It did take us, quite literally, an hour of standing in the checkout line before we made it to the register, but even that was made a little more entertaining by watching new shoppers’ eyes go wide as they walked in the doors and saw the lines.
End result: we’re prepped and ready to not leave the house for the foreseeable future (well, Prairie teaches this morning, but should be home by noon before the snow gets serious).
Stay safe and warm, everyone!
