Warm winter weather hurting some businesses


A great day to get outside Saturday.  But maybe not such a great day for some business if you're selling things like salt, snow blowers, and snow shovels.  Hardware Plus in Osceola tells us with the warmer temps they have folks coming in to buy things they normally wouldn't in January, like car wash materials or things to clean their gutters with.  But it's still not the weather they hope for this time of year.  "Two years in a row is kind of a lot for us.  We're all set up to help our customers when we have big winter storms and that stuff's just sitting on the floor right now," said Adam Jackson with Hardware Plus.  He added, "our business is really weather dependent this time of year.  We would prefer to have colder weather and snow to sell things like that."
