So much for the calm before the storm. People are stocking up in anticipation of a massive blizzard predicted to make its way up the East Coast in the next few days. As everyone prepares for the weather, photos of empty shelves and long lines in grocery stores are popping up on Twitter with the hashtag #blizzardof2015.
Here's a sample of what it looks like when about 29 million people are given a "blizzard warning" by the National Weather Service.
