And with a projection of 2 to 5 inches of snow here in Hampden County, local grocery stores, were once again very busy. Plenty of shoppers were seen getting those last-minute essentials to weather this storm.

“I come and get what I need for at least a couple of days…the bare necessities…some canned goods and whatnot, added Langston. And getting those canned goods, and foods that require little to no cooking, experts say should be on your grocery list when preparing for a storm.

According to the CDC, in the event of any storm, stock up on food products that have a long storage life. The CDC also recommended stocking up on plenty of water.
