50 thoughts from Trader Joe’s the day before a snowpocalypse

*Earlier this week, everyone thought that New York was going to get blasted by a blizzard. So I hit the store and immediately regretted everything. Here’s what it’s like being in the Union Square Trader Joe’s store right before a snow day…
