SALISBURY, Md.- Employees at Rommel's Ace Hardware in College Square in Salisbury were busy Wednesday stocking shelves with snow supplies in preparation for the weekend winter storm. With the threat of snow and a wintry icy mix covering Delmarva, shoppers were rushing to stores to get last minute supplies.
John Church, a manager at Rommel's Ace Hardware said it was an extremely busy day for the store and they had planned ahead for the rush.
"We stocked up on all the winter supply needs for the storm," Church said. "We have a variety of items in stock, from heaters, ice melt, shovels, generators and even sleds for the kids."
Eleanor Insley lives in Salisbury and was out getting supplies today. Insley said she's hoping the storm is not too bad.
"I'm just getting salt and I'm going to the grocery store. I'm hoping we will only get 2 inches or so and nothing more," Insley said.
With the varying scenarios based on the storm's track, most people are preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.
