That is what the Lord said to me today.
I went to Kroger to buy some groceries. Not a lot of stuff, as there were not any outstanding deals, but we needed some milk and produce and a few other items. There were some black clouds in the area, but we had some yesterday and not a drop of rain at my house. Big fake rain clouds! I was hoping they would drop a little rain and hoped to dance through it after grocery shopping. Yes, it has been that long since we had rain that I was hoping to get wet.
As it always happens, when I get to the store, I find a few more items that I need. LOL! So, I had about a 1/2 cart load and moseyed up to the checkout. I got into the line with a guy who had just unloaded his not too full cart, so figured I would be out of there pretty quickly.
Not so fast, little lady! While the checker was scanning the man's items it started thundering and lightning. Then there was a loud crack! And the power went out!
No big deal. We all know stores get back on line pretty quick.
Well, not today. The staff was so great and came to each checkout letting everyone know that the managers were on the phones...I guess cell phones since the land lines weren't working....with Corporate trying to get everything back up.
Some people started leaving. I am pretty patient, so I waited....and waited...and waited......
45 minutes later, they still didn't know when the registers would be back up. So I came home.
No groceries for me today. Hubby will have to go to the store this week. He won't mind, so it is not so bad.
Frugal Friday......the March 23rd Edition
