With winter weather on the way to the greater Baton Rouge area, people are hitting grocery stores to stock up on supplies for the next few days.

Some people worry if the roads become icy or a significant amount of snow falls, they could be stuck in their homes.

"You never know what to expect, but you want to be prepared," said Robert Butler.  "I'm just taking precautions in case there are power outages and getting things for the kids in case we have to stay in for a day or two."

Some stores ordered extra bread and milk, which are typically popular items.  People also stocked up on fire wood.  Some shoppers have generators from hurricane season they will be able to use if the power goes out.

"We're kind of excited because should we lose power because of all the ice, we're good," said Terri LeBlanc.
