CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Northeast Ohio woke up to a slushy, wintry mix of snow and whipping wind.
While some spent their Sunday inside, others went out to buy winter essentials.
"I'm just what you call a really true shopper it doesn't matter," said one shopper at Harvard Park Center in Warrensville Heights. "I had to buy winter mats and I've got some hot cocoa. I was, I just wish it would've been here for the holidays it would've been really pretty, but now that it's here I wish it would go away but I guess it's here to stay"
Inside Corky & Lenny's in Woodmere employees say there was a constant flow of business.
"The phone was ringing of the hook," said hostess Joann Disidoro. "Everyone was coming and buying a lot of food to go home just in case they got snowed in or anything."
Driving conditions today also proved to be a challenge for some like Wendell Bugg who stopped by Harvard Park shopping center in his way back home to Maryland.
"Visibility was a bit challenging earlier in the day when you actually had flurries, but as the day went on it became clearer," Bugg said.
And with some areas expecting up to 4-6 inches overnight that could make for a messy Monday morning commute.
Tom Hank of Cuyahoga Heights suggests what to do to stay safe on the road.
"Make sure you slow things down a little bit. Keep gloves in the car, and take it easy and hope everyone takes it easy too," said Hank.
