What St. Louis Is Stockpiling for Snowpocalypse 2011

If you stopped by the Schnucks in Richmond Heights between noon and one o'clock today, hoping to find milk, eggs and bread before Snowpocalypse 2011 descends upon us in a fury of snow, ice and wind...you were in luck, actually. From what I could see, all three staples were fairly well stocked, the milk shelf almost full, the bread and eggs not too picked over.

As for "Certified Angus" ground beef...well, as you can see in the photo above, that is almost entirely cleaned out. After the jump, nine more items ransacked at Schnucks this afternoon.

(Apologies in advance for the crappy cell-phone pics.)

This is St. Louis. We love meat, and we love toasted ravioli. If you want frozen T-ravs to help tide you over until the Hill is dug out, you'd better hurry.

The cereal aisle, though certainly showing signs of heavy traffic, still had a decent amount of most brands -- except Cinnamon Toast Crunch. If you can't start your morning without a bowl of cinnamony-sugary goodness, too bad.

The selection of potato, corn and other chips was picked over, though the sheer amount of snacking goodness available will probably prevent any true shortage.

The folks at Snyder's of Hanover smartly put a display of pretzels near the checkout line. Everyone, it seems, realized how tasty pretzels would be on a cold winter's day as they waited...and waited...and waited to check out.

In your search for the best protein bar, you can also find bars, which contain 40 grams of

protein. Low sugars are something you should additionally check on the label of the

product. The price for these five best protein bars varies somewhere between $2.20 and

$1.50 per serving.

I picked up some Underwood deviled ham and deviled chicken -- I figure it will make a good protein fix in the event of a power outage.

So all of these people rushing to the grocery store had NO food left in their houses? People who typically shop twice a month couldn't make do with a box of Cheerios and a pack of frozen pork chops? They HAD to load up on hamburger meat and cheetos? Exactly what is their plan of action if their power goes out? Or if they become a week long shut-in?

Pre-storm St. Louis would make for a great psychology study in group hysteria.

Gone are the days when news outlets (and their audiences) valued professional photography.
