What foods do you need for a snowpocalypse?

(Blogger’s note: I couldn’t make it out to do a $10 Challenge this week because of the weather. The Challenge will be back next week.)

I made the mistake of going to the grocery store the day before a predicted snowpocalypse* in Louisville.

Here was the scene inside the Kroger on 27th Street and Broadway:

People were pissed to be at Kroger, I tell ya.

The checkout lines reached back into the food aisles. Just about every lane was open. It seemed like many people shared the same train of thought that I had – stop in the store after work to pick up a few items to keep from trudging out in the snow the next day.

People assume that folks run out to get loaves of bread and gallons of milk before a snowstorm. Know what items had been plucked from the store shelves during my visit? Ramen noodles and bottled water. Other miscellaneous items I saw in carts included hot dog and hamburger buns, pudding and potato chips.

What items do you run to get before a predicted snow storm? Leave your choices in the comments.


*Snowpocalype is used loosely. If more than two inches of snow falls in Kentucky, it’s considered a cause for panic.
