The second major storm in a little more than a month is expected to hit the DC region later this morning. And it isn't just snow plows that are preparing.

That sound is all too familiar during and after snowstorms. But one sound usually precedes that.

Long lines at the supermarket are common in the run-up to a storm. Giant Food spokesman Jamie Miller says they're ready for more snow.

Been awhile since we've seen a winter with this number of storms come through. Giants been a business for 70 years, and has been through a number of storms. We really pride ourselves on execution," says Miller.

Miller says the supermarket chain started ramping up deliveries to stores on Wednesday.

"We've been making additional deliveries of the staples; milk, bread, even windshield washer fluid and rock salt," he says.

One major change in the days before a storm is that Giant makes those deliveries 24 hours a day instead of just during business hours.
