Weights and comfort food for the snow day
BATON ROUGE - Working out and buying comfort food was at the top of many people's list for Tuesday's snow day.
Monday night's empty grocery store shelves were restocked the next morning. Many places were closed but lots of shoppers grabbed comfort food items at Calvin's Grocery Store.
"It's nothing but sheet metal in there, every stick of bread was gone," said Daryl Muhammad with Sara Lee Bimbo.
"It's kind of frightening in a way, but we weren't as prepared last week and I think now we're going to be over prepared," said local shopper, Donna Jolly.
Out-of-towners grabbed lunch at restaurants. Walk-On's restaurant is open, looking forward to tonight's LSU basketball game against Kentucky. Other people headed to health clubs that are open, to work out and avoid cabin fever.
"Snow days, people love to come in, just because they get away from the weather for a little while and when everything else is closed there is something else to do when you kind of have to stay at home," said Robert Bogan, general manager at South Gate.
Bogan says the gym has been packed for the last week because of the cold weather.
