Jittery shoppers were crowding grocery and hardware stores early Thursday, stocking up on food and anything that would make it easier to clear their driveways and sidewalks.

THIS PAST SATURDAY I passed by the old Gorsuch Avenue A&P. OK, it's really a Super Fresh, but I'll always think of that grocery store by its former name.It was no ordinary Saturday in Waverly.
