As the winter storm approaches, communities prepare

People are not only getting supplies for the Super Bowl parties, but they are also preparing for the large winter storm that is supposed to start affecting metro Detroit Saturday night.

As Dave Spencer found out, grocery stores are full of people trying get ahead of the storm. 

"I walked in at 11 in the morning and there were lines, people everywhere it was crowded already," said Brandon Fitzpatrick, cashier at Hollywood. 

However, they are not the only ones preparing for the storm. The Wayne County Road Commission is making sure their plow drivers are home getting rest. Authorities said they are making sure their crews are getting ready to keep up with the constant snow storm.

"We do have our compass website, which it is That allows the public to see what we are doing, the trucks we have out on the road, where they have been the last four hours," said Robert Conrad, Wayne Co. Department of Public Services.

They will be covering over 2000 miles. The crews will arrive at the road commission once snow starts falling. 

Because of the Super Bowl, a lot of people will be home watching the game instead of on the road making it easier for the plow trucks, authorities said.
