Snow shovel, where art thou?

As the snowpocalypse rears closer to the D.C. metro region, everyone is panicking. Rightly so. In Cleveland, this wouldn’t be a huge deal, but here, people are going absolutely nuts. Anyways, given the problems with shovel access last time both in stores and with our condo association, I tried unsuccessfully last night to get a shovel. That effort failed.

So, tonight after work, I walked straight to my car determined to find a shovel. I left realizing my prospects were slim, but I went along anyway. I drove south on Route 1 from 495, where I live.

I stopped at Target, Lowe’s, Giant, Rite Aid, Home Depot, Wal-Mart, (repeat a few) and finally Big Lots ….. nearly past Woodbridge. After a 20 mile trip, no such luck. So, I did what any reasonable individual did, I bought the biggest Jim Beam they sell (with a $7 mail in rebate!).

Good luck to those not too familiar with snow. Don’t forget to check out the original snowpocalypse site. I’ll update with pictures here and on twitter.
