Terre Haute, Vigo County stores restock after blizzard, polar vortex

Many Indiana Counties, including Vigo County, lifted their travel warnings and advisories. Delivery trucks made it into the Wabash Valley to restock many of the empty store shelves. Supplies of bread, milk, eggs and rock salt almost dwindled during the blizzard and the polar vortex. Shoppers went tout Thursday to restock the emptied pantries.

Even though trucks made it into the city once again, many stores worked to clear a back log of supplies. Clerks worked quickly to restock milk, eggs, and bread. Even though the shelves were no longer emptied, certain items still could not be found. One shopper at the Wal-Mart south asked an employee about jumbo eggs. The Wal-Mart employee told her that the jumbo eggs were not available at the moment, but they might be out on the floor soon.

The changing weather facilitated the sudden influx of shoppers. Snow had melted off US 41, US 40 and other main roads through the city. City crews worked on removing snow from the secondary roads. Tertiary roads remain slippery, but a mild weekend temperatures should correct the slippery situation.
