This is what grocery stores looked like before the ‘Snowpocalypse’ (6 Photos)

snow lead tons This is what grocery stores looked like before the Snowpocalypse (6 Photos)

When it was announced that Washington D.C. could get nearly 30 inches of snow, people made a mad dash for the grocery store. This was the scene a couple days ago at over a dozen D.C. area stores as people flooded into the supermarkets, grabbing whatever wasn’t bolted to the floor. Pretty amazing. Any Chivers out there have some stories?

    • Brie

    That’s what the local WalMart looked liked when my town got hit with an ice storm last year. Power was out for over a week. I was lucky though i was at college instead of at home. My brother wasn’t so lucky. Murray’s power went out and he HAD to go home to no power lol.

  • Bored

    haha 3 feet is nothing and yet people panicked over it, if u live in Maine 3 feet is a small storm

    • Rusty

      No shit. These pussies wouldn’t make it through even the first month of winter up in the County, huh?

  • Franky

    Ok heres my story:
    This one time we were expecting a blizzard, so we went to the kwiki mart, and everyone was going crazy, and this old lady grabbed me by my hair and put me in her cart thinking i was food. This kid martin was in the cart too, she thought he was a pumpkin.

      Sounds an awful lot like an episode of the Simpsons…..

      • ladyguitarstar

        DingDingDing! We have a winner!

  • DUDE

    that would be a funny story if it wasnt complete bullshit

  • bodombeats

  • ladyguitarstar

      *stumbles in late with lampshade on head, one shoe, yodeling through paper-towel roll*
      Ohai! Sorry, kindof got arrested the other night. I think your story was awesome, and those that don’t aren’t worth breathing your air.

  • mikesmovielife

    i live in MD. the grocery stores were insane the day before the snow. as you can tell from the pics. also, i live on a curvy hill of a road that has yet to be plowed. close to impossible to get out. sucks! now im hearing we are getting another 4-6 inches by wednesday?

  • vitorla

    This is pathetic. You DC, MD, VA, DE people are babies. Try getting this much dumped on you every two weeks.

    • Max Spain

      I am from VA and find that typically the ones freakin out are the Yankee Retirees that flock here once they hit 65. Not to say that some of the people here don’t know how to handle the snow, there is always a rush for bread and milk. We don’t get much nowadays but 10+ years ago we had numerous storms every winter and people dealt with it just fine. That being said, i just made it back from Iowa after being stuck in their airport because they had heavy snow.

      • vitorla

        I had the pleasure of spending a winter in Moscow and currently reside in Chicago…both have some of the most brutally crappy winters you could ever experience.

  • snephie

    I’m originally from Michigan, where this much snow isn’t a big deal. Now living in MD/DC, they don’t have the right equipment for all this snow. They don’t have enough people out plowing, or the funding for it. The roads are a complete mess. What sucks I stocked up on groceries, only to have to throw them away when the power went out for 3 days.

  • Sed

    This is pretty understandable, actually. The county where I live doesn’t budget for big snowstorms, so it isn’t prepared to handle this kind of storm. It can usually take days for all of the roads to get clear, and power outages are more frequent here than more northern places where this kind of storm is more common. Big snowstorms therefore hit us harder than they do in more northern places.

    In addition, the people here also usually haven’t been in this kind of storm, so it’s reasonable for them to overreact and not know what to do.

  • LOL

    This is why God & Skidoo make snowmobiles. I can always go to Grandma’s house and get canned stuff we put up last fall. 🙂

    Around here, folks will drive through 12 inches of snow to go weekend skiing, but can’t make it out of their drive way to go to work on Monday morning. 😛 Oh well….

    I live in NW DC but am originally from rural pennsylvania and I have never seen mayhem and a lack of order like there has been these past few days. The streets are like a scene from Mad Max,. People dont obey any form of traffic laws and there are no cops anywhere. All of the grocery stores are as empty as the one above and none of the stores can stock beer for more than 10 min. I think its hilarious but everyone else seems to be acting like its the end of the world

    • top dog

      You would have loved the South when Katrina came through, everybody lost their minds from east TX to western Virginia.

    All you folks claiming that you get 3 feet regularly and deal with it with ease are full of BS. Link your area from weather or news reports which received more than 2 feet this winter. I’m from the back country of Quebec, and yeah, we get dumped full of snow regularly, but I haven’t seen 2 feet in one snowfall in a long time.

  • Eirik

    I think its shopped, I can tell by the missing pickles.

    • Mustafa_Beer

      ding ding ding…. funny MF’r !

  • Gonz
