People Are Funny

    My daughter works at our city's largest grocery store.  She got off at 6 p.m. tonight and called me when she got in her car.  People were standing in line WAITING FOR A BASKET.   We live in a city of about 200,000 +/-....and have three local tv stations with very competent weather people.  We have known for days & days  now that a winter storm is coming and it should be snowing for several days starting tomorrow.  Most of the time we have sunshine, wind and nice temperatures.  The weekend was windy (normal for us) but beautiful, Monday was mid-70s, yesterday and today mid-60's.....the next five days will be highs in the 20's and 30's and lows between 17 and 22 so what did most of the town do??? Went to the grocery store tonight!  Probably part of it is that today is the 30th but it has happened like this for all of my adult life.  Drive past a grocery store on the night before a storm is expected and suddenly everyone remembers maybe they should buy some bread and milk.  I like the Boy Scout prepared.  But then I hate standing in lines and hate shopping when the rest of the world is in the store.
