I was in the grocery store today, just my regular shopping trip, and it was PACKED. I was all confused about why it was so busy... thinking, Hmm, it's not the first of the month, it's not a holiday, what's going on???? Then I realized it was because of a big storm coming tonight.
What I don't understand is, why does this make people run to the stores in droves? It doesn't make sense to me. The storm might keep everyone more homebound for a day or two, though many people will still probably go to work... the stores will still be there the next day... do people really not have enough food in their pantry to get through one day??? We could easily live out of our pantry/freezer for a week or two (and have done so when we're too lazy to grocery shop!) I've got to be missing something, there must be some reason or some horrible situation that happened years ago that makes people feel the need to stock up.
So... do you run out to the stores the day before a storm? Why or why not?
