Bring It On!

Last Tuesday — as Westport braced for our 3rd nor’easter in 2 weeks — shoppers did their usual bread, milk and eggs thing.

By early afternoon, supermarket shelves were bare.

That storm barely touched us.

Today — with yet another storm bearing down — the scene at Trader Joe’s was quite different. An hour ago, it looked like just another day.

I guess Westporters aren’t worried —  even though the latest forecast warns of up to 18 inches of heavy, wet snow.

Or else we’ve stockpiled so much food from the last 3 panic buying sprees, there’s no room for any more.

BONUS FUN FACT: Spring arrived today at 12:15 p.m.

    Maybe people have begun to realize that the possiblilities of being trapped for more than 12 hours is pretty slim. We are not the Donner party!

    • Well, maybe.

      Unless, perhaps, you live in Puerto Rico right now, post hurricane Irma.

      6+ months of no electricity for a good portion, still to this day.

      Serious lack of clean (or even functioning/existing) running water.

      And, it can (and does) happen, anywhere, anytime.

      Best not to be complacent, me thinks.

  5. … nor the Franklin expedition, who “lived” off of rusty cans of “beef stew” (and maybe each other) because they didn’t care to hunt or ruin nice shoes…

    Seriously, maybe an earthquake preparedness type kit would help ease minds in future.
