When dealing with this wintry mess, having items like salt and snow shovels can make all the difference.
For places like K & K True Value Hardware in Bettendorf, the store manager said they were busy Saturday morning with customers getting supplies.
When Local 4 News stopped by around three Saturday afternoon when snow was coming down, the traffic died down.
The store manager said the weather conditions play a factor in how many customers stop in.
“I enjoy winter. I like living in a place that has four seasons so you know when I’m outside on Christmas in a short sleeve shirt I feel like I’m in southern Missouri living right now, not Iowa so I enjoy like I said all four seasons,” said Casey Keller, K & K True Value Hardware store manager.
If you plan on going outside, it’s recommended you wear a lot of layers and if you’re driving on the roads, make sure to take it slow.
