Riggin's Market in CrisfieldThe storm that hit the southeast is barreling our way, so this morning I dropped in at Riggin's Market to see how the milk department was holding up; people always seem to buy milk and bread when a storm is predicted. I wonder why? I like candy and chips.
I expected an empty dairy-counter but the milkman had beat me to the store, as had the breadman. But I did snap a photo of one of the first customers to pick up a gallon of freshly delivered milk.
If the storm hits, I will be out as usual, so stay tuned. I hope everyone has/had plenty of bread and milk.
Be sure and get your milk card at Riggin's. Buy a certain amount and you get a free gallon. Free is always good.
