as Jax, or any other Mostly Smoggy So.Cal. resident will testify to, there's some really *ahem* beachin' reasons we love living here.
sorry. it had to be said.
there are good reasons: the weather (most of the time), really close beaches and mountains, killer mexican food...Disneyland.
then there's the smog, the traffic, Disneyland, and grocery store strikes.
yes, for the second time in recent history, the Big Three are likely going out on strike.
doesn't that sound like fun?
we have Ralphs(owned by Krogers), Vons & Albertsons, Stater Bros. then there's a few independent stores. right now, it looks like Raphos, Vons & Albertsons are going out.
there's been no contract since April. and it looks like it's going to happen soon.
this happened before. the year we did our road trip to northern California, they had been on strike before, during AND after we came home.
doesn't that sound like fun?!
not a big fan of Stater Bros. Trader Joe's is a fun and much better option. it just involves driving, and while we do a lot of that here, driving with groceries ain't fun.
but it could be worse...the bus drivers here could go on strike, too.
