Storm Story

I had an interesting experience yesterday.  I went to the local grocery store across town and the parking lot was almost empty.  On the door was a huge hand-written sign: CLOSED / No Power.  What was really confusing was not only that I had had no interruption in power but also that the lights were on in the store.  As it turns out, I had come when the lights had just come back on.  The power was out from a storm we had 3 hours earlier.  All the open shelves of produce were bare, and all the cases were covered.  I was able to get the bread I needed, but not the milk.  No matter how hard you try to prepare, it still is jarring seeing stores closed and shelves empty.
