A Good Day

I stood in line to get into my grocery store today. Like most of the few stores that are open in this area, they are running on generator power, so there were minimal lights on in the store and only non-perishable items available in limited supply. They were only letting so many people in the store at one time, so when someone came out, they let the next person in. But I was able to get my much-needed prescriptions and a few basic items to keep our storm-stock going. We have no milk, no meat, no frozen foods, but we are eating and have plenty of bottled water (we are still under a boil-water restriction). I even have chocolate. Life is good.

I'd say that is a good day indeed. Hopefully tomorrow will be even better.

Well, as long as you have chocolate, right? So sorry you're in the midst of this. So glad you're well.

Who needs milk when you can get drugs?! :)

We got fresh milk at the Target on Bay Area. We got there shortly after the delivery. Don't know if they still have any. No lines, either. Sometimes there is a line at one of our two Krogers, and sometimes there isn't. HEB seems to always have a line. Not sure about Randalls. The Kroger on El Dorado has power now. Walgreens on El Camino has been open, too.
