Most the stores in Austin are closed. Hopefully you are already stocked up on everything you need because the Austin grocery stores that are open have very little inventory. These shelves are empty and look like something out of a zombie apocalypse movie. The wonders of the green new deal/build back better/great reset/agenda 2030 socialism are on full display working wonders for Austinites unless you enjoy stuff like food, water, heat and electricity. One added benefit of this mess is that grocery stores can really see the products that have no chance of ever making it because they are still in stock on the shelves. Apparently no one will eat Tomato Basil soup even if there is no other choice. Once the Tomato Basil soup is gone it might be time to start worrying.
