NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – While the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) prepares the roadways around Middle Tennessee for the winter weather forecasted for Wednesday morning, parents and residents were, too.
Ice melt, windshield scrapers and snow shovels were sold out at the True Value in Inglewood.
“I just try not to think about it if there’s snow in the forecast,” said True Value employee Rebecca Hostetler. “It’s always hectic.” Get the latest at wkrn.com/weather.
People were buying space heaters and chains for their tires.
“I’m supposed to be off work but I might get called in,” said shopper Ronald Gooch. “I’m going to be prepared in case I have to pick somebody up to take them to work.”
Down the street, there were long lines at the Inglewood Kroger.
“It was very busy and there was very little food on the shelves so I had to find what I could,” said mom Justine Stassun.
Parents were also waiting to see if Metro Schools will cancel classes. A spokesman says the district hopes to make a decision on whether to cancel classes by 4:30 Wednesday morning.
