Last-minute shoppers don't let winter freeze frantic search

By Jonah Kaplan. CREATED Dec 23, 2013

WEST BEND -- Holiday procrastinators already leave their house (well, when they choose to) with an agenda.

This week, the plans must include "drive safely."
After a winter storm dumped up to 9" of snow in parts of southeast Wisconsin, plows headed out in full force to clear roads and highways.
With Christmas just days away, too, the snow removal crews also pounded plenty of parking lots.
"Most of the time, these last few days, everyone is out shopping to get it done," asserts Anthony Harrington, a self-proclaimed procrastinator. "Whether it's snowing or not, we brave the weather to get everything done."
Slick conditions aren't exclusive to the roads outside, however. Store managers tell TODAY'S TMJ4 that wet boots create wet floors inside; they liken tile floors to ice skating rinks.
