The store was padlocked. Damn.
Half a mile west to the Mobil station. Padlocked. Double damn.
A mile north to the Clark station. Padlocked. What the bloody hell? Has there been some ecumenical rapture that only effect convenience store employees?
Half a mile east to the BP. Finally, capitilism thrives!
Home again after 2.85 miles and the better part of an hour. Still no idea what is going on.
