“Crazy, chaotic, crazy, people running around like it’s the end of the world, but it’s not,” said Veda Showalter who was out shopping.

Some shoppers like Veda Showalter have been busy, stocking up and buying more groceries before the storm. 

Many stores have bare shelves. 

Veda says she’s ready for whatever comes our way. 

“I’m ready. I got lights, lanterns, and all that stuff, I’m ready. I just hope the lights don’t go out,” said Veda Showalter who was out shopping.

Even though they’re buying the basics, some aren’t worried about the predicted storm. 

“Maybe some wind, rain, but nothing serious, you know,” said Antonio Wright, who was out shopping.

Others have been preparing for days. 

“We got some food yesterday because we know it’s going to be a big storm,” said Walter Nowlin, who was out shopping. 

One thing on everyone’s mind, safety first.

“Be safe out there and I hope anywhere, where you are just stay at home. Don’t go out there, just taking a chance,” said Scott Manns, who was out shopping.

One of the managers at the Kroger on Rutgers Street says they will be getting a shipment in of water Wednesday morning.
