Fearful of the blizzard's potential to cripple their cereal preparation, area residents plundered supermarket dairy cases. The Hy-Vee in Raytown reported a reduced stock at 7:45 a.m. on Tuesday.

Kansas City firefighters were shopping for groceries at the supermarket along with residents who waited until the storm's arrival to obtain adequate supplies of animal flesh and bananas. The National Weather Service is predicting a snowfall of 10 to 16 inches.

Snowplows had begun their work as large swaths of the citizenry braced for a day of napping, weather-related Facebook status updates and Wii.

The meat counters at Hy-Vee and other supermarkets indicate that tacos will be prepared and served at many area homes tonight.
