Northeast Blizzard: New Yorkers' Most Annoying Grocery Store Posts
New Yorkers are sharing their thoughts as they brace for the storm.
-- As New Yorkers flock to grocery stores to stock up on supplies before today's expected blizzard, they still have time to take social media by "storm."
The snowstorm, which began as a clipper system that brought snow and slick roads to the Midwest on Sunday, was expected to hit the East Coast hardest Monday evening through Tuesday.
From ditching lines at Whole Foods to running out of kale, here are some of the most obnoxious tweets from New Yorkers in the midst of storm preparations:
Winter storm watches, warnings and advisories were in effect from the mid-Atlantic to New England today. Residents from New York City to Boston can expect perhaps two feet or more of snow.
Local leaders in the New York area were warning residents to stay off the roads and planned to shut down or curtail mass transit systems as the storm intensifies.
President Obama was briefed on the storm and White House officials have been in touch with state and local officials on the eastern seaboard, according to White House Spokesman Josh Earnest.
FEMA also has assets in the region ready to assist, Earnest said.
