LAKE MARTIN, AL (WSFA) -
The stormy weather
hasn't been a convenient partner for Becca Hepburn's convenience store in
Eclectic near Lake Martin.
"We're busy but not
as busy we normally would be," said Hepburn.
So far it's been a mixed
bag at her business. Gasoline sales are down 20% compared to this time last
year but groceries are up.
"I think a lot of
people are staying at home and just chilling," said Hepburn.
Martha James had it all
mapped out this weekend; a little bit of skiing, scuba diving and swimming.
James ended up settling for less.
"We couldn't do it
all because of the rain but we still got to cook out and see some fireworks
but not at Lake Martin," said James.
Bill Major of Atlanta,
Georgia, took a chance by taking his 21-foot decker out in the lake.
"Well, obviously we
won't stay long if it starts lightening or if the wind picks up but we're here
for the 4 day week and plan to make the best of it," said Major.
Good weather or bad
weather vacationers say the bottom line for them is this is the holiday weekend
and they're here to enjoy their 'independence.'
The Lake Martin
fireworks are set for tonight (Friday), rescheduled from last night due to the
12 East Delano Avenue
Montgomery, AL 36105
