4-Staters stock up on winter essentials in first accumulating snow

Joplin's Home Depot saw a rush on tube sand, causing the store to restock its' front room with more.  

Drivers with lighter vehicles and pick-up trucks purchased the sand to put weight on their vehicles to maintain traction in the snowy conditions.

Assistant store manager Jason Smith says he had many customers stocking up on the basics.  

"You think about around the house, obviously shovels is one of the big things to clear the snow and as temperatures drop later in the evenings just making sure we have ice melt on hand. Just to make sure there's no ice build up at that point."
