Just got back from the local True Value hardware store. Had to pick up a variety of little things – you know, a couple of mortar screws to hang a picture on the brick wall, some plastic sheeting and duct tape to seal the space around the air conditioner in the closet (don’t ask), extra flashlights for the next blackout, and naturally some Dave’s Insanity Salsa. Unfortunately they were out of the Hurtin’ Habanero Honey Mustard.
Of course everyone else there was buying plywood and generators… something about a hurricane???
