ST. LOUIS — Customers flocked to grocery stores across the St. Louis area for some last-minute shopping ahead of this weekend’s winter weather.

Excitement for the snow, and the push to stay prepared, resulted in long lines and packed parking lots at Schnucks locations.

“The lines are so long like they’re wrapped around the store and in the aisles,” said customer Jenitta Woods.

Food was flying off the shelves as customers stocked up to stay home.

“Anything that I don’t have to cook, I’m buying mostly prepared meals,” said customer Delores Guyton. “But I do need the basics, the staple items like eggs and milk and that kind of thing and of course dessert.”

The necessities are different for every customer.

“I bought two bottles of wine, two things of brie cheese, and some crackers,” said customer Bob Smith. “We’re going to hunker down!”

Schnucks even joked about the rush to buy staples like milk, eggs, and milk.

“It seems our customers like to make French toast because bread, milk, and eggs are three of the most popular things that we will sell today especially,” said Schnucks spokesperson Paul Simon.

Aside from those snow day staples, people were also buying soup, snacks, and frozen pizzas.

At the center of author Naima Coster’s novel What’s Mine & Yours are two struggling mothers. Jade is a Black single mother who is trying to provide a better life for her son, and Lacey May is a white mother who is trying to give her daughters the life she never had. Their stories will intertwine over decades, starting with when Lacey May opposes the integration of her daughters’ school – the same school Jade is trying to get her son into. Coster told NPR’s Audie Cornish that fiction gives us a window into other people’s lives but that does not mean we have to condone their actions.

UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas and former champ Carla Esparza are expected to meet for a second time at UFC 274 on May 7. Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso was the first to report the news of the match-up being in the works via a tweet, although the promotion themselves have yet to confirm anything regarding the booking. Esparza won the pair’s initial meeting back at The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale in December 2014, where she defeated Namajunas via a third-round submission due to a rear-naked choke to become the inaugural UFC women’s strawweight champion. The 34-year old Torrance, California native currently is on a five-fight winning streak and is coming off of a second-round TKO victory over Yan Xiaonan at UFC Vegas 27. Namajunas meanwhile is 6-1 in her last seven Octagon outings and will try to build on a split-decision win over former UFC strawweight champion, Zhang Weili, in their rematch back at UFC 268.
