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?

    People don’t freak out because it snow all the time in Canada, mabe even in the summer. It don’t snow that much in DC, when it does, it shut things down most of the time. I love the way you tuff guys talk when it don’t involves you.

    when we got that ice storm in 08 in Mass the stores were even worse, there was nothing left–that is if the stores were even open, since most of them weren’t thats still pretty bad though

    Thank You. i knew you’d get it.

    Did you really get arrested?

    • HellHathNoFury

      Shamefully, yes. I may not think so further down the road, but it was well worth it. 🙂

  • ladyguitarstar

    What kind of bird doesnt fly!
    Well, at least you didn’t get shanked. (I hope)
    Saying it was worth it makes me think you were vigilanting in your combat boots, saving hookers,, or throwing red paint on fur cladded women. am I close? 😛

      How highly you think of me, and how harshly I will let you down. No, some dude followed me to my car, drunk, and I told him in no uncertain terms to leave me alone. So I got a friend o join me next time I came to my car, and he started grabbing, so I punched him. I still have nasty bruises on my arm. I got arrested for throwing the first punch even though he was being grabby and following girls around at night. Makes sense.

        Well thats no good. Did drunk dude go to jail, or at least get his ass kicked?
        Here’s hoping they drop charges.

        • HellHathNoFury

          Nope, he got victim treatment, got his pics taken to show my ‘assault’ even though I have gorilla bruises. I had court the next morning, and they let me off, since the cops that showed up knew me. It was a token arrest.

          • ladyguitarstar

            Right on.

    Ha. You guys think that is bad? I’m from Texas. We close schools if there is 1/10th of an inch of ice or snow. xD Then again, we also see a tornado going through the city next to us and just nod. Every place is used to it’s own weather. All the Canadians and yanks talking about how they were pussies to stock up like that are hypocrites. I hear you guys complaining about heat waves when its barely 100 degrees outside. Pffft.

    […] Those of you who have lived in the tundra need no further explanation.  To those of you who have never had the pleasure, much like the proverbial singing of the operatic  ”fat lady,” here in snowpocalypse territory, it’s not over until the meterologists have incited hysteria in the general public.

    Our town was cut off from the rest of the world for a few weeks due to snow and rock slides. The only full grocery store in town collapsed due to snow on the roof. Every bit of food from the gas stations disappeared and for awhile our shelves were completely bare. Serious snowpocalypse. (it took almost two weeks to dig a tunnel to our neighbors house. I can’t remember how long it was before we could make it to town) The thing I remember most was that one of the things we ended up with a lot of was egg nog, so we started drinking that for meals. It ruined store bought egg nog for me

    I moved to the D.C. area nearly two years ago and even though I’m originally from NH and have lived in Maine I have never experienced a storm as severe as this one. Not because I haven’t seen this much snow at once, I certainly have, but because of how ill-equipped this area is to handle a snow storm. We are not far enough south to justify such a total lack of preparedness. Snow plow drivers are poorly trained and for some reason travel in packs of 12-15 on one side of the highway taking hours before ever touching the opposing lanes. Vehicles are allowed to be parked on the streets making it impossible to clear all the lanes for traffic. Four lane roads have been reduced to one lane, but people still drive as though they have all the room in the world. Maintenance crews refuse to snowblow walkways and the property managers aren’t bothering to have the apartment parking lots properly plowed. People digging their vehicles out of the snow will simply pile it in front of other people’s cars. If it weren’t for our 4wd truck there would be no way for us to even get out of the parking lot.

    People just honestly don't know how to handle snow when they haven't been around it. It's just powder in your way crazies!
