I did not go out to buy milk the last time we had 20 inches of snow because stores would be crowded and did not enjoy my coffee for two days

yes, the shelves are always bare the day before a predicted storm.... I think it's the result of what we went through with the blizzard of '78...people were shut in for days...could not get out of their homes... and if they did, the roadways had 4' of snow....they weren't going anywhere...

Michael J. Perry That must be an eastern PA thing.  The winter-ready western PA residents, especially the ones along Lake Erie don't panic until the forecast calls for two feet or more of snow.

Florida is the same way.  

    They have all year to stock up on necessities.   But they wait until the day before a Hurricane arrives to race to the stores, strip the shelves bare of bottled water, canned food, and flashlight batteries.
