The American Red Cross recommends stocking up on water, food and flashlights ahead of snowstorms like the one that crossed the Midwest Thursday. Workers at Des Moines' Doll Distributing rushed across the city Thursday, scrambling to check in and make deliveries to stores, bars and restaurants before the storm hit. Doll Distributing handles beer and wine.

As it was Des Moines only got about 7" of snow but it was slippery for a while.
