CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Home improvement stores in Charlotte set out their stock of winter weather supplies in anticipation for snow on Tuesday.
 
Blackhawk ACE Hardware on Park Road saw business Monday night on winter supplies it hasn't seen in months, selling sleds and rock salt to treat snow on driveways and sidewalks.
 
"Probably more sales in the last two hours than we've probably done all month on any of this," said lawn and garden worker, Chris Snodgrass.
 
Road crews, both with Charlotte and North Carolina departments of transportation were out earlier Monday treating major roadways with brine solution.
