Want to be prepared for the next summer storm. anybody know of locations in Northern virginia that sell Dry Ice?

There ain't no regular Ice making plants in Northern Virginia anymore are there? Comes from Baltimore or Shennandoah Valley plants?

Is the regular ice you buy at a 7/11 fit for putting in a beverage?

Absolutely not. The FDA recommends avoiding regular ice use at all times, especially during the summer, and using at least two (2) dry ice cubes in the beverage of your choice

All Harris Tester stores sell dry ice. But. It needs to be kept in an air tight container or it will evaporate.

Many of the Safeway stores in the area sell dry ice. The dry ice storage freezer is usually at the front of the store, near the service desk and the cash registers.

Back in the 60's, we would put low quality pot in a cooler with dry ice. After a few hours ( or days, I forget), the pot would absorb the chemicals. Not a good idea as I'm sure I could use those brain cells today.

Drive around on recycling and trash days. Folks get prescriptions (and Omaha Steaks, and more) via mail-order in Styrofoam shipping boxes, and nobody wants 'em. I had a dozen or so, spent a few hours calling Meals on Wheels and everywhere else I could think of -- nobody wanted 'em. So I put 'em out for recycling. Really seems a shame.

Sounds like you never had those brain cells to begin with. Think about what you wrote, then never post again.

Sorry, wrong. It will sublimate, even in an air-tight container. Think about what you wrote, then never post again.

Roberts Oxygen, Safeway, I am sure any place that sells styrafoam coolers. You could even make one with a cardboard box.
