What you should know for snow

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - With snow in the forecast, people should start preparing now.

Several items, such as batteries, flash lights, and water, are common things people stock up on before the storm hits.

But items like kitty litter to help with traction on the road, caulk to fill gaps to keep cold air out, and generators to supply backup power are all things that are typically forgotten about.

With some local stores already out of salt and low on other supplies, people are urged to stock up now.

"Come in now. Make sure your home is protected now," said Dawn Mobley, Assistant Manger at the Lowe's Home Improvement store in Greenville. "That way once the storm hits you can sit in your house and be warm and protected."
