    Christmas Shopping! (better hurry)

    I just came from Merle Hay Mall, and there was not a single place to park! Many of the people I chatted with are trying to finish their shopping tonight, before heading back to their destinations in the AM due to the incoming weather. I can only imagine what the grocery stores look like. (anyone?)

    I went out this afternoon to Merle Hay Mall and a few places in WDM, and everything was packed. I wasn't sure if people were rushing before the storm or if this was just the regular holiday crowd.

    I wasn't sure either... I was figuring (since it's a Monday) it has to be because of the weather, but I'm sure its a combination of everything. The weather, the Christmas shopping season winding down, rush hour... name it.

    It was a lot busier than I expected. I thought this afternoon might be like a normal weekend shopping day, but it was much worse than that. The stoplight at 100th & University by Valley West was backed up for at least a block in all directions around 2pm.
