Winter supplies short around the area

WICHITA, Kansas – If you ran out of ice melt after the last winter storm, you may be out of luck. A lot of stores are out.

KSN did find some at Indian Hills Hardware at 13th and St. Paul.

The general manager there says they anticipated there might be another storm before the end of winter so they worked for a couple of weeks to get a new supply of ice melt in.

“You’re hoping that winter is over. Everyone’s anxious for the warmer weather, but knowing Kansas, you just have to be prepared,” said Wayne Butterfield, Indian Hills Ace Hardware.

Butterfield says the challenge is trying to not have too much left-over at the end of the season.

If you want some, they had a couple pallets of the stuff about two-hours ago. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
