Downfront in January

Between storms, Bob Hannigan, owner of Hannigan's Market, managed to get a truck load of groceries out to the island. Of course, it was Tuesday, the normal day for fresh produce to show up so everyone went grocery shopping before the next storm. Nothing makes a storm more bearable than a refrigerator full of eggs, milk, ice cream, Allen's coffee brandy and Bob's fresh baked bread.

Of course the area around Hannigan's Market looks a little different than an August summer day but at least you can find a parking spot. With some plowing still uncompleted, Hannigan's truck took up a couple of spaces but who cares. His famous (or infamous) wording of "If We Don't Have It, You Don't Need It" absolutely still works for me. Says it all for the spirit required to live on an island. Enjoy the downfront scenes.
