WNC residents stocking up on wood ahead of snowstorm
Many folks are stocking up on supplies, including things to help them keep warm, ahead of the approaching snowstorm.
Local tree companies have reported a run on firewood.
In Flat Rock, Epperson's Tree Service crews have been busy chopping wood.
Owner Dale Epperson said his crew has been going non-stop because of people wanting orders and home deliveries.
"Anytime the weather service puts out a warning like this, my phone starts ringing," Epperson said. "I'm getting 15-20 phone calls a day. Everyone is asking about prices and just wondering when I can bring it."
Epperson said he expects his crew to be making deliveries through the weekend.
Many retailers are also busy selling firewood. Check stores in your neighborhood or look up nearby wood supply services.
