HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - We all know that Alabamians like to be fully prepared for any potential snowfall.

The first mention of snow sends people to the grocery store, all with a similar list and its 'egg-xactly' what you think. Bread, eggs, and milk are always in high demand when a meteorologist mentions snow. Local grocers always keep an eye on the weather so they can supply their stores with the customer's needs and demands.

Tregg Player is the district manager for Kroger and he says,"We up our milk order greatly and we actually send extra milk in just to anticipate the needs." In fact they usually end up selling more than double than they usually do.

The high demand products means an increase in staffing as well. "Nonstop filling process to get ready and to just keep up with the milk and the bread," says Player.
