Staying One Step Ahead of the Snow

Posted:

POCOMOKE CITY, Md.- The snow is coming down on Delmarva now, but before it all settled in people in Worcester County were preparing for it.

People dropped in to Advanced Auto Parts earlier today to stock up on winter items.
Kevin Taylor was one of them. He is a contractor who is always on the road.

"We're just making sure there is antifreeze in all the trucks and salt in all the driveways," Taylor said. " We have a lot of customers here on the Lower Shore."

Taylor's worried about keeping his car in good shape. So, he dropped in to pick up a jug of de-icer.

"I would suggest that everyone grabs a gallon of de-icer. It's good especially first thing in the morning," Taylor said. " You don't want your engine to freeze up."

Car batteries could be a problem too. A store employee replaced a customer's battery this afternoon.

Debra Struss works at the store. She anticipated a big rush ahead of the storm. She talked about a few items that may go first.

"De-icer, definitely," Struss said. " People will definitely look at our shovels, ice scrapers and windshield wipers because they're critical to drive safe and to see in the snow."

While some were hesitant to see more snow this January, Chris Carter is telling mother nature to bring it on. "We love the snow, we lived up in Baltimore for a while and I always went sled riding and we were out all night long," he said.

Counties on the Lower Shore are expected to see more snow than other places on Delmarva.

    In a plan approved by the legislature, full-time minimum-wage workers in Maryland will ultimately make about $875 less annually than they would have under the governor's proposed timetable, an economic analyst said. Legislators voted last week to have Maryland's minimum wage reach $10.10 an hour by July 2018, whereas Gov. Martin O'Malley originally wanted it to reach that amount by July 2016.More
