BATON ROUGE - While DOTD and street crews have been working through the weather, News 2 found many people around town with other plans to get through this cold and ice.
   
At one gas station in Baton Rouge, customers were in and out all day, but fuel hasn't been the number one purchase.  Coffee, hot chocolate and movie rentals are the top sellers.

At the grocery down the street, the hot items from earlier in the day, bread and batteries, were still fully stocked Thursday night, and it seemed dinner items were in demand, but not much for weathering the cold.

But at the St. Vincent De Paul shelter, no one took the ice warnings for granted.  The organization was filled to its max, 100, at all if its shelters and is ready to take in more if needed.
