Last-minute essentials as we brace for winter storm

Posted: Updated:

When we talk about preparing for a winter storm, we can never be too prepared.

Rick Swanson at Nyberg's Ace in Sioux Falls says stocking up those essentials is vital. Things he recommends are snow melt, working snow shovels and blowers. That way they are effective and efficient when we need them.

What we're bracing for a mid-season storm and often times, Swanson said, people aren't as prepared as they should be.

"If it gets bad enough, if we get enough snow then what'll happen is another gear will kick in, people will break shovels, they'll  have to replace them, same thing with snow blowers. This time of year, people downtown to buy them but if it gets deep enough, they'll buy them this time of year," Rick Swanson said.

Other things just as important are car essentials. If you plan to hit the road, or find yourself out there last minute, make sure you've got the warm gear: hats, gloves, extra blankets, etc. Keep in mind that winter safety kit and extra windshield fluid as well.  

Safety is the name of the game, no matter what Mother Nature brings our way.

Because this storm is near the end of the winter season, snow-related equipment can be found at discounted prices at Nyberg's Ace and other spots around town.
