Area residents are preparing themselves for the wintry weather that will likely affect the region for the remainder of the week. Jacob Johnston, General Manager at Theisen’s in Pella says sales of sidewalk de-icer and snow shovels have picked up again this week, and says spikes that go on over shoes to prevent slipping on the ice have also been a hot-selling item.

Johnston adds that following the heavy snow earlier this month, the store sold out of snow blowers and has sold half of the most recent shipment that came in. Rain, freezing rain and snow are all in the weather forecast through Saturday.
