Preparing for a significant winter storm this weekend

Weather News

While the hills and the Berkshires have been dealing with some snow this winter we’ve haven’t seen any significant snow in the Springfield area since November.

It’s looking like that will all be changing though as a winter storm is expected to move our way.

Now is a good time to prepare for the messy weather that we’ll be dealing with this weekend.

Rocky’s Ace Hardware in Agawam has seen an increase in business. “Started last night, towards mid-afternoon people coming in for snow shovels, snow brushes, a lot of ice melt and rock salt. A lot of pet safe ice melt, we’ve been selling,” said Joe Ovelheiro the manager of Rocky’s Ace Hardware in Agawam.

“It is mid-January so we got to expect something. I’ve been playing golf up until now… It’s the ice I’m really concerned about that’s why I’m here at Rocky’s, I want to pick up some ice melt,” said Bob Pilon of Agawam.

While you’re stocking up on those winter supplies you might also want to pick up a sled or a snow tube for the kids, it’s looking like they may finally get a chance to use them.
