Snow plow drivers are just some of the employees across the state that actually work more when storms like this hit. Driver Roy Ball says he started around 5:30 Wednesday morning and didn't stop until around 3 Thursday morning.

Hardware stores are also keeping busy. A crowd was waiting outside Van Franklin's store Wednesday morning before he even opened the doors. The steady stream of customers didn't stop until the store closed that night. Obviously, scrapers are the biggest seller of the day. But many people grabbed a sled as well. For some it was no work and all play Wednesday.

Of course when everyone is stuck at home during a storm, pizza is the perfect companion. Papa John's manager Ed Lemmon says snowstorms mean big business for them. He tells us one store can sell around 500 pizzas in one day because everyone wants the food to come to them.
