“I’m not getting too much. I saw the Brothers’ Green on YouTube had an Asian noodle soup recipe, so I’m getting the stuff to make that. My plans for this weekend are Starbucks, Asian noodle soup and Netflix.”

“I was woefully uninformed about this storm. I work at Kenyon and I just moved into a new house this semester, so I’m here to get all of the basics before the storm. Milk, eggs — all of the good things you need.”

Martha Gregory, Gambier

“I’m getting rice and eggs. I just found out that the storm was coming and now we’re taking it seriously. I was studying for the GRE and I wasn’t paying attention to the news.”

Veronica DePascuale, Gambier

“I’ve come to get a little more Pepsi. I drink 8 (cans) a day. Some people drink coffee, I drink Pepsi. I just want to make sure we have enough food and get essentials and stuff like that. Bread, milk for the kids and for the babies. We have grandkids coming to visit this weekend.”

Kevin Frazee, Mount Vernon

“None, water.”

Kayla Levings, Centerburg

“Right now I’m getting canned goods to make sure I like have food. I’m picking up some flowers to make it look nice because it’s so dreary out and like snacks I guess. I like doritos, sour patch kids … ice cream. My essentials are my girlfriend and making sure I have power so I can charge my phone.”

Passo Ahmed, Columbus
