Local Small Businesses Impacted by Winter Weather

HARRISONBURG, Va. Tuesday's winter storm impacted small businesses throughout the Valley.

Managers at Las Chamas said Tuesday was their slowest day of the winter season and because it was so empty, the restaurant felt it was best to close early.

The restaurant usually has more than 100 people walk through its doors throughout the day; however, on Tuesday, they barely had a quarter of their regular customers.

By dinner time, the managers became nervous about making it home themselves and decided to close early.

Evelyn Hernandez, who works at the restaurant, said she normally works Tuesdays, and it is always busy.

"Sometimes people leave because it is really full. Or, sometimes people have to wait for tables to sit down and eat. But, yesterday I guess it was slow," said Hernandez.

The day after the storm, Hernandez said they were a lot busier than expected.

In fact, after finishing her shift, she was asked to come back and help with the night shift because of the crowd.
