ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The wet heavy snow that has fallen is making things pretty treacherous on the roads and on our own sidewalks and driveways.
We called around to multiple hardware stores to see if they have salt in stock. Several places ran out last week and most say they have enough for this latest round of snow. If you're tired of winter, a few stores are already thinking spring. Right next to the salt and winter supplies at Home Depot sits a display of lawnmowers and grills.
"We went through our spring set last week, so the great Midwest, the only place where you can find tractors out right now and still have salt out,” said Phil Seehaver, Store Manager of Home Depot.
As a reminder, the City of Rockford has declared a Snow Emergency, so your car needs to be parked on the even side of the street tonight but you need to move it to the odd side by 8:00 a.m. tomorrow, February 27, 2013.
