Texas woman is suing Facebook over a fake profile.
While most stores weren't unusually busy during the day Tuesday, that's expected to change as the weather starts to roll in Tuesday night.
Inside Mr. B's Market around noon Tuesday, the isles weren't packed with people trying to prepare for the winter weather.
"We've not seen it here. Most people that have made a comment about it are commenting that they are ready for it," said Jesse Billingsley, owner of Mr. B's Market.
Billingsley said people reacted the same way three years ago, which was the last time there was a threat of snow and ice in Valdosta.
"It's probably about the same thing," Billingsley pointed out. "Most people realize that the weather event is coming through and have made preparations to stay inside."
But once the rain -and possibly snow- starts to fall, the lines at the register will likely start to get a little longer.
"That's what we're anticipating. That when they do realize it's here, they will come on out and pick up the things they feel necessary for a couple of days," explained Billingsley.
Margie Bradley works at Mr. B's.
She says if she wasn't working, she would definitely go to the store and pick up a few things just to be safe.
"I don't think it's gon' be that bad, but I still would pick up a couple few items to have at home just in case because you never know what might happen," Bradley said.
If you are headed to the store and are wondering what to buy, Billingsley has some advice.
"I would recommend that they, number one, get somethin' to drink. And number two, something that if the power goes out, something they can cook hot," Billingsley advised.
It's always better to be safe than sorry, as they say.
