It is getting close to time for the snow to start and everyone is doing last minute preparations I went to Giant and Balducci's around noon today to see how they were coping. Balducci's was busy but not much worse than the average weekend, all the registers were open with 2 or 3 people in line for each. I didn't notice anything out of stock and there were several employees stocking shelves.
The gas station across the street was busy, with all pumps being used, but not more than one car waiting in line.
I didn't see many plows out in Bethesda, but towards Silver Spring they were starting to stack them up on the side of the road to be ready.
