MILWAUKEE - Snow supplies are set out in various stores next to spring supplies, because you never know what mother nature will bring this time of year in our state.

"You've got to be ready," said Ralph Ignatowski of Village Ace Hardware, which set out snow shovels next to spring supplies.

"We don't have that much left, so if we do get a lot of snow, I'll probably run out of shovels."

Although Southeastern Wisconsin has had a fairly mild winter, snow gear has been selling.

"We sold quite a few snow shovels," said Ignatowski.

Salt has also gone fast.

"We sold quite a bit of (it), because of all the freezing, then thaw...so a lot of salt went this year," said Ignatowski.
