Okay, tonight I’m finally getting out of work on time. I’m going to go to the Food Emporium in Union Square to get my Hurricane Sunday supplies. I’ve heard people are getting a little kooky and stores are running out of supplies. I don’t get this. It’s only going to be one day. And it’s going to be one nasty-ass day indeed, I don’t want to leave my apartment during the storm, so I’m getting enough food for one day. I’ve seen people on the streets with bags of food and cases of bottled water. That’s fucking nuts! Fill up some jugs and bottles with tap water and put them in the fridge in case the power goes out and there’s no water. And why buy a shitload of food, a lot of it perishable if not refrigerated, if there’s a chance of the power going out?
Anyway, I figure I’ll go to the store tonight for food and then tomorrow I’ll stock up on the booze supply. The whole Hurricane post will be up this Monday, now it’s time to get the grub!
And we're off! The Empire State Building is colorful tonight.
It's really nice out tonight, the calm before the storm.
Windows are being taped in anticipation of the hurricane.
Okay, we're almost there.
And here we are at the Food Emporium. Time to get some supplies for Hurricane Sunday.
Holy freaking shitballs, look at the lines in here. This is nuts.
Goddamn, people do know that this is just going to be a one day shut in, right? All the bread is gone.
Nothing here either.
An empty freezer, I hope all the jerkoffs that bought frozen food realize that there's a good chance of a power outage and that shit is just going to spoil in the heat.
Another empty case. Oh well, I need to lose a little weight anyway.
A few shallots remain, maybe I'll make some onion soup on Sunday.
A real Slim Pickens moment!
The loneliest can of sleazy cheese in the world. Sob!
Well, I managed to find a few things but now I have to wait in this god-awful line. I'm glad I went tonight, I can't imagine what will be left tomorrow.
Okay, after a half an hour wait in line, I'm finally out the door with my stuff.
I took a break in Union Square Park to listen to this trio. They were really good so I threw them a few bucks.
On my way home I looked up and saw the lights in this building. I think the storm is the least of our worries. Aaaaahh!
