People in the Valley are doing last minute shopping before the storm hits

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (Valley News Live)- Many people in the Valley have been getting ready for the big storm, either by running to the grocery store or filling up in gas.

A few people in Grand Forks were doing their last minute preparations and stocking up on essentials.

"I get chicken out driving in that. With the streets and around intersections, it's always so bad that the older I get the more chicken I get about driving out in this weather," says Lorna Aamold, Grand Forks Resident.

Aamold says it's important for people to stay inside during storms like this one, because safety should always be first.
