Heavy snow possible on busy holiday shopping weekend

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- It's one thing to be doing some last minute Christmas shopping, and another to do it when a snow storm makes it harder and more dangerous to be out on the roads.

"Last week we had a winter snow storm and traffic was okay; it wasn't as heavy as usual," said Lyndsey Hicks, a spokesperson for Woodland Mall.  "And since we are getting another one this weekend, it's going to be crazy because this is the biggest shopping Saturday of the year."
