“First time homeowner. I got burned on the first snowstorm, so I have to get ready for this one,” says Sparta resident Ian Casella.
From a business perspective, snow means more customers coming into hardware stores, which means more sales for the businesses.
“It has been busier than in the past. The last few days with sunshine and 40-degree weather wasn’t all that popular here,” says Lianna LeValley, of the Hardware Store of Sparta. “People want their salt, their shovels and they also want their snowblower fixed.”
The snow is expected to change over into rain by late Wednesday afternoon and into the evening.
