Publix Blew into Town

January 21, 2017

Our trip to the grand opening of the new Publix store this morning was a bit more than we had bargained for.  Sure, when we started out it looked a little gloomy. And yes, it was more than a little breezy.  But we didn’t think it was going to get as bad as it did.  We were in the meat section, when everyone got the same text message of a tornado warning.  Thinking it was just an exaggeration, we kept shopping for a few, then headed on to the check out.  When we got to the front doors, we immediately noticed their new landscaping being chewed up by the wind, and the trees bending over.  We headed back inside. The managers passed out cookies, and told employees to get out some chairs for us, and we waited it out.  When it had died down a little bit, we got in the car and headed home.  There were some destroyed signs, trees down, debris in the roads, and one poor soul got a tree on his house.  That was round one.  Round two is hitting us right now.  It looks like it’s going to be a looooong night.
