I suppose the title is a tad dramatic. There was one carton of eggs with three that were broken, but other than that the case was empty. This lack of eggs took place yesterday afternoon February 8th at the one Annapolis area Safeway store that was open, the one off 450 next to Best Buys. The other two, the one in Annapolis off Forest Drive and the one in Edgewater were both closed due to lack of accessibility by delivery trucks. Another snow storm is presumeably on its way dumping as much as 18 more inches! The snow seems to bring out the best in some people– helpful neighbors, and thoughtful co-workers but it also can bring out the worst as folks push their way to grab up the last grocery supplies and go joy riding through snow banks clogging up the roadways and preventing the passage of emergency vehicles. When will it all end? At least I live in walking distance of downtown, so I’m never completely snowbound. Walking to work was definitely an adventure, with no sidewalks cleared on West Street. Several times I needed to jump atop a snowdrift on the side of the road, just to stay out of the path of a passing truck. Will they ever clear my street? Stay posted.
