#Juno2015: Trending topic on the internet and “Better safe than sorry” seems to be the bottom line but here’s how it really went on Monday night. I love to tie up an outfit story to actual facts - yawn.
Monday evening, January 26th. 11.55 pm. Manhattan is a ghost town.
Hours earlier Wholefoods turned into WholeZoo. The line at Trader Joes was possibly even worse with people standing in line outside which made me feel like I should have been more worried about starving than I actually was about the snow.
My WORST fears realized when I get to my own local grocery store down the building: no more Doritos on the shelves. I'd rather wake up without electricity. I hate you all! Kudos to the girl in front of me who checks out a large box of condoms and a double six pack of beers.
I stayed up till 2 am and still nothing. I was already out of Pringles by 11.30 pm. There was even a “traffic ban” after 11 pm. Delivery bikes were not considered as emergency vehicles so my sushi / pizza neighbor couldn't order his usual take out.
Instagram and twitter were collapsing and it was hard to tell if it was snowing outside or not with so many statuses. I made a short instagram movie during the day that made it to both the New York Times online and was the opening video on their instagram, jay!
The blizzard never came but gave us all New Yorkers the opportunity to bundle up and work from home the next day. Thanks #Juno2015
