Schools are closed.
As I have been working in a grocery store all week I was expecting a mad rush.
Didn’t happen. At 4pm there were 4 registers open with 2 customers in line. I asked a clerk when they expected the rush….she said that it had been crazy all day.
Having working in Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania during snow scares I know what a grocery store gets like when a storm is coming.
And this wasn’t it.
I mean, come on….it isn’t a snow scare until you have a couple of women duking it out over the last package of hamburger rolls….or white bread.
Maybe I am just not used to snow scares in the polite society of of Birmingham.
Either way I am looking forward to having Birmingham in my rear-view tomorrow.
Just to turn around and drive to Auburn, Al Monday morning.
