LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — Milk, bread, eggs, and meat were hard to find at some grocery stores around Lexington Wednesday as the city braces for its first snowfall of the season on Thursday, Jan. 6.

“If anything happens I don’t want to starve and I also don’t want to run to the store and have to fight for the food. I’ll grab some canned foods and maybe some meats. I don’t think it’s going to be a big storm hopefully but I’ll be ready for like a week,” said August Mage, Lexington resident.

People also headed to their local hardware stores to stock up on essentials like shovels and ice melt.

Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton said crews have already started treating roads in preparation for the storm.

Gorton also asked that everyone take extra precautions if they do have to be on the roads Thursday.
