As the Valley continues to battle winter weather, businesses in the area may look a little deserted. 

Chik-Fil-A in Howland closed early on Thursday afternoon. 

"Sunday's about the only time you ever see it like this," says Chik-Fil-A Howland owner Derek Emerson. 

The store closed to ensure safety for its employees. 

"We want to make sure that we keep things safe for out team members," says Emerson. 

Chik-Fil-A wasn't alone in its decision to close due to the storm. Rulli Brothers grocery store closed early as well. 

"Normally on a day like today we'll have four to 8,000 people in the store and today you might have a couple hundred if you're lucky." says Rulli Brothers owner Mike Rulli. 

Top distributors and stock trucks are taking the day off as well. 

However, snow plow drivers are seizing the opportunity and getting to work. 

"The snow makes the money, we love it," says snow plow driver Zach McComb. 

However, the continuing winter storm is beginning to tire McComb out. 

"we're getting tired of it but we like it," says McComb.
