Couples celebrate a snowy Valentine's Day




BLUEFIELD, W. Va (WVVA)-- Love is in the air this Valentine's Day, and flowers are certainly a staple for those looking to send a little something to their valentine.

Florists told WVVA the roads were clear enough for their deliveries to go well Friday.

Some customers chose to go big-- like one person who bought 125 roses for his lady at Brown Sack Florist.

Elaine Jessee, the owner, tells us the man placed that order because he and his girlfriend had been seeing each other for 125 days.

But other customers at the flower shop chose to stay simple, proving the stand-by of keeping it classic is still in vogue.

"I'm going to get her a couple roses now," said Tyler Butt as he picked up his bouquet. "Four to be exact, because we've been together nearly four months. And later we're going to go out to eat and watch a nice movie."

Ted Marchal, also buying flowers Friday, told WVVA he had been snowed in and unable to take a trip to Gatlinberg. He was unexpectedly snowed in, but he and his wife of 11 years took advantage of that fortunate event.

"We'll have dinner out," he said, "and [we] have a fireplace. And a bottle of wine."

Florists said the bad weather didn't hurt their bottom line too much; they did just fine this year, despite Thursday's storm.
