Bad weather keeps some shoppers away

Shoppers braved rain and icy sidewalks Wednesday as they headed out to do some last-minute shopping before Thanksgiving.



Many shoppers at the A&P supermarket in Riverdale said they were surprised more people weren't out. Those who did come out to do some shopping or get on the bus had to endure slippery sidewalks and steep hills covered in slush.



People waiting for the bus said it was running with delays of almost 30 minutes all evening because of the weather.



Overnight lows will drop to near freezing into Thursday and people are advised to watch out for icy streets and sidewalks.
