The New York Times, 5 January 2018, Winter Storm Pounds Northeast With Wind, Snow and Flooding:
The shelves of some New York City grocery stores quickly emptied of milk, eggs and kale as New Yorkers stocked up for the storm, and grocers worried whether the next produce trucks would ever arrive.
Milk I understood. Eggs are good food-rich food. Two out of three isn’t bad.

NY isn't the rough and tumble place you grew up in. It's a new and gentle place :lol:
