It's Snowpocalypse time, and you know what that means: It's time for everybody to do what this Web site tells us. Since last night, we've been hearing tales of terror from grocery stores around the region. Our story: We spent 45 minutes in a packed Whole Foods line, only to learn that we really got off easy—the store started making customers wait for entry outside just after we left (for the glorious refuge of a bar across the street, where we could watch the madness).

In the comments, tell us your own grocery-store tales. Are the bread aisles empty? Did you see two shoppers fighting over the last carton of eggs? Was there uncontrollable sobbing in the dairy department? Send us photos, too, to and we'll post them online.
