No food!

The hurricane messed with my errands yesterday. So, I went grocery shopping tonight and came home with my smallest bill yet. Not because of couponing or buy-one/get-one deals. Oh, no. Because of lack of food.

My phone died before I could snap a pic of the produce aisle sans produce. It was an eerie sight. Bins upon empty bins. Shelves that were always filled with fruits and veggies – empty. Then I turned down the meat aisle. The center racks were empty. Sale tags looking lonely. Venturing down the frozen food section, I convinced myself that there was no way those shelves could be empty. I was obviously wrong.

Takeout will have to do. Until I realized half the restaurants still didn’t have power.

Always be prepared, people.

    And the worst part is that fully half of the fresh food people bought will be wasted because they did not really need it, they bought it in a panic, and they have no way/knowledge to store it for the future. *sigh* We are, at heart, herd animals...

      Not to mention the people who bought a full fridge of produce and then lost power. One of my co-workers had no electricity for three days from the hurricane, and he ended up throwing out almost an entire refrigerator of food he had bought just before the storm. What a waste.
