Great job OP! I just wanted to add though, just for some perspective, that the same Walmarts, Targets, etc in North Dakota in Williston and Minot are
in the same condition, on a DAILY basis. Empty shelves are nothing new up here in oil country. And the prices? We pay 2-3x what you see in an average
Walmart. A gallon of milk? 6+ bux. Water? IF you can get it, it goes at a premium too, as does everything else. It's pretty sad when JC Penney's is
the cheapest store for durable goods such as clothing and bedding.
I do feel badly for you folks out there, but here we would call such a storm normal winter weather. Most folks are well prepared before winter ever
hits, and that is to our advantage. When that storm passed thru here a few days ago, we got about 2" of snow and another 2" of ice, followed by
another 2" of rain.
Hope you guys get things back up and running soon and that everyone stays safe and warm out there!!
