People anticipating the snow started stocking up early.
Stores wasted no time putting shovels, icy melt and other winter supplies on display. Grocery and convenience stores saw customers grabbing the usual staples like bread and milk.
Another item that's in demand is water. Some are worried power outages could shut down well pumps or freezing pipes could make it hard to get water.
Drivers were also filling up their gas tanks.
