Haven’t Gone Shopping Yet? You’re Kinda Screwed.

This is a mad house!

This was the scene last night in the produce department at the Safeway on Lee Hwy. Lots of thing were still available, but probably not the things you would care to eat if you had a choice. Beets, radishes, papayas and kale were still there. On the shelves were pig knuckles, potted meat, mustard, clam juice and laxatives. That was about it.

Since the snow has been delayed a bit from its predicted early morning start, what last-minute items are you heading out for?

  1. The Safeway at CityVista was really well-stocked about an hour ago. Downside: it was a madhouse and I spent 70 minutes in line.

  2. Wine was my most important item.

    For some reason all the raisins were gone! Who looks at the snowy forecast and thinks “Better clean out the raisins!”

  3. Chocolate chips, flour, yeast, cheese, tomato sauce, wine. The sexy Safeway (5th and K) was decently stocked this afternoon, though the line was about an hour long.
