I went to the grocery store today just to pick up a couple of things for dinner over at a friend's house, and it was a mad house. I couldn't understand why people were stocking up on water and frozen goods. Sheesh, frozen food? I mean come on, use common sense. Buying frozen food is kind of stupid considering that if the electricity goes out from the supposed terrible winds and horrific rain, the food will end up spoiling.
Personally I think folks in Austin are being a little over zealous in their fears. I feel like we'll be fortunate if we get rain, but doubt it will be terrible storming like the news predicted a few days ago. Today on the news they said winds could get up to 20, maybe 40 miles an hour here! Oh the horror! *smirk*
Honestly people just settle down.
