As folks are bracing themselves for cold weather and snow, some are thinking about traditional ways to stay warm.
WITN Craven County reporter Alize Proisy is among those with the fireplace already going.
She says she had some wood delivered Sunday, and the man who dropped it off said he's busier than ever.
Same goes for Alex Burton. He sells wood out of his home in Craven County. Over the last week folks have been stocking up for the cold weather and he says he's nearly sold out.
Up the road at Ben's Lawn and Landscaping, they're keeping warm by splitting oak for next year. This year's seasoned stack along Highway 70 is still a plenty--but in the past week, they've been selling fast.
