Usually at 9pm on a weeknight the grocery stores are pretty empty and have very little lines, but not last night. As I pulled into the parking lot I felt more like I was pulling into a show at Northern Lights. I couldn’t figure out why it was like that, so I asked the cashier. She reminded me that we are due for some serious storms due to Hurricane Irene and said that it was going to be a lot worse on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. So if you have a little time this afternoon to get in before most people get out of work, you may want to try and beat the masses.
