ASHLAND (WRIC) - Driving down the main road in Ashland on Sunday was not going to be busy.
There are some places people expect to be open, but that wasn't the case.
Ashland Coffee and Tea was dead. The spot off North Railroad Avenue is known for live music, but the only sound was coming from the train and cars and trucks rolling by.
The business put up a sign apologizing to customers and telling them they will re-open Monday.
But just down the road close to Randolph-Macon College, the open sign at a nearby convenience store is bright. They've been open since 6 a.m. But business is slow.
"I think some other people probably got their stuff earlier the day before they knew the storm was coming," says Randolph-Macon student Matt Wein.
The store clerk inside says it's been so slow, if business doesn't pick up, he's going to close early.
