Safeway opens at 6 a.m. and there were many empty shelves. the only thing I really had to compromise on was the dry cat food. Note to self, remember to buy it at Podesto's next week. I got everything I wanted except for a certain kind of egg noodles that TBG wanted. I did find them at Podesto's. Check out was a breeze and that was that, with the exception of some women nearly running me now as she barreled out of the parking lot.
Then I went back to TJ's. It was now 8:25. I couldn't believe the line that had grown since I'd been gone. We took turns and eventually the manager came out and said that they had TP and would let everyone have one package. The woman behind us was frantic for it (a stockpiler, for sure) . I took my package and then went to get a couple dozen eggs (we're making bread pudding today) and the meats we needed. Then I went back to TBG who was in fruits and vegetables. Surprisingly, the only thing they were out of was garlic. I will need to get some later.
Anyhow, after that we hit Podesto's which was an island of calm. they had everything except TP and pasta (with the exception of the kind I needed). We picked up some cookies and that was it. A quick trip to the PO and we were back home.
This is not a bad thing...
