There was a high demand for ice melt products as the snow began piling up throughout western Massachusetts.
Rocky’s Ace Hardware in Springfield was full of customers stocking up on supplies for today’s storm.
Francisco Ramos of Springfield told 22News, he’s happy Rocky’s kept a good supply of rock salt on hand for a day like this.
“Well, I have to get the salt here and I have to get the grease, they don’t have the grease here for my snowblower, grease it up and that’s about it,” Ramos said.
Shovels weren’t moving as quickly as the rock salt. Customers had apparently gotten their shovels in time for the season’s earlier storms.
