what a difference in experiences. i went to both S&S (Newington) and CVS this afternoon and neither was any more crowded than usual. i was able to get through the express lane without much waiting and there was still plenty of stuff left on the shelves.

Why has this thread grown to 16 pages? It's just a freekin' snowstorm! Happens all the time. It will snow, then melt and be forgotten.

Now I realize that it's not something you sign up for, but I didn't get any alerts...

I have an AT&T iPhone 5, and am currently in New Haven....
