It seems like such a waste of time. I see that on CNN every time there's a major storm.
We don't do that up here. They never tell us we can't go out in the storm (ever) and if we go to make sure we have enough milk for a couple of
days, there are no more people shopping than usual.
I've never seen shelves stripped bare.
The time is better spent making sure the stuff outside around the house is put away, storm windows are in place, and the dog poop is picked up out of
the yard (before it gets buried under more snow or rained on)
Unless for some reason that blizzard was supposed to be TEOTWAWKI
The media down there likes to really hype things up, and then keep it going for days in advance.
Up here, if you missed the weather section of the news......
