Valentine's Day still happening despite weather

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

With so much that has been happening with the weather, you may have forgotten that Friday is Valentine's Day — the day that many set aside time to celebrate with their loved ones.

Many people all over the CSRA said while they were a little discouraged by the weather, they are still hoping their special plans uphold.

We caught up with some people who left their homes, braving the ice, to buy groceries and fill their gas tanks. They also didn't forget to buy flowers, candy or chocolate. They said they were not going to let power outages, ice or debris get in the way of their day.

"I do have plans and I hope we can still do that," said Eddie Waycaster. "I know my wife does. I don't think it's going to make much problem with that."

"It may put a cramp on it," said Stanley Smith. "Then again, if it doesn't, a lot of places are going to be over-packed because being the first day you really can get out and get going."

"I don't think it will," said Karin Waycaster. "It's a special night you get to spend with your loved one. I really don't think it's going to affect it at all. I know we've got plans and we're still going."

For those underachievers, you may be in luck. With stores like Walgreens and Kroger being open Friday, you may still have a chance to get your special someone something special.

Regardless if you have fancy plans or just home with your love, we want to see your photos. Upload them on social media using the hash tag #CSRAVDay and we'll put them on our web site and some may be shared on air.
