Winter Weather Preps

Got milk? With the potential for snow and wintry mix, people were hitting the stores to stock up just in case.

Over at the Walmart in Greenville many had grabbed the essentials like water, eggs and milk.

Many were taking no chances to be left out in the cold if the weather got bad.

Over at Lowes in Greenville many people were getting a head start by grabbing up the salt and ice melt.

The manager their says her shoppers would rather be safe then sorry.

    I think I've figured out the milk,bread,and egg thing when snow is comming.Snow increases the urge to make french toast,this is the only logical reason.

    If you people can go through a gallon of milk within the next 11 hours I sure would like to know what you are doing with it!? We were going to school in a foot of snow when I was a kid.

    I think the bread, milk and egg industries got together and came up with the idea of sending subliminal messages through their TV commercials to brainwash us to rush out to our local supermarkets and purchase bread, eggs, and milk when ever we hear the weatherman just mention the words snow or hurricane. I think it’s a conspiracy.

    It is not that bad do not panic citizens of East NC. It is only Snow. I just called a friend of mine in New Jersey they still have over 2 feet of snow. The Schools and Stores are open. It is only snow.

    Other than putting such food outside, how will these people, who automatically buy milk, eggs, etc when a storm like this comes, keep their food cold if the power goes out? It makes no sense at all.
