Grocery stores have really started to branch out when it comes to their merchandise. When I was a kid you could only find the American staples: canned goods, produce, meat, dairy---nothing out of the ordinary.

We're in for a doozy today. It's severe weather season in Oklahoma, and it definitely feels like. There's a mugginess in the air that's only felt this time of year.
