Local residents stocking up on winter supplies as first snowfall nears

Weather News

When it comes to snow storms, it pays to look ahead and be prepared than wait until its too late.

When the folks at Rocky’s Hardware stores saw the 22News Storm Team meteorologists earlier this week talking about snow, they played it safe and ordered a sizable supply of ice melt.

“Right in time, first thing this morning, we had our delivery of ice melt and by 8 a.m. when the store opened, we had it on the floor inside,” said Dewayne Kelly, manager at Rocky’s in East Longmeadow.

The store was busy on Thursday with people looking to stock up on rock salt, shovels, and ice scrapers.
