Does hurricane season have you worried?

first_img 1 COMMENT I went in to the Save A Lot grocery store yesterday in Apopka, and I thought they were going out of business, as that huge long frozen food freezer/cooler down the right side of the store was completely void of any food, and totally empty. The same for the freezer/coolers along the right side wall with the doors that open, to get ice cream sandwiches, ice cream, sausage patties, etc. All empty! Then across the back of the store, where the fresh meat is kept, the meat was stacked up in packs, setting out of the cooler refrigerator, and looked like it was being moved. I asked what is going on, and found out that a storm with bad lightening had ruined the refrigerator, freezer units. If this is any indication of what happens during regular thunderstorms, we are in trouble, as far as the hurricane season! I was told this happened last Monday, and that corporate headquarters still hadn’t done anything to get them repaired or replaced. People were coming in to shop, and some walked right back out the door. I wonder if generators would have helped, or not, I don’t know. I sure am not looking forward to more hurricanes. I am thankful we have gotten our big trees down though. It is so hard to find food, ice, gas, water, batteries, toilet paper, tarps, you name it, during and after the hurricanes….it is a circus! I wonder about the flooding problem there on Piedmont Wekiva Road and at the two hotels on 436 and how that is going to be, if we have more hurricanes?
