ENERGY, Ill. (WSIL) -- For some people, work doesn't take a snow day.

Beautiful Roses set up shop in Energy today, braving an icy parking lot and below freezing temperatures.

Cars packed the lot looking for Valentine's Day flowers.

Workers say with the holiday just two days away, they can't afford to close up shop during one of the busiest times of the year.

"What can I say? We're at the mercy of the weather here, you know? We're like the postal service. We don't stop because of rain, snow, sleet or ice. No, you need flowers? You come find Beautiful Roses, and we'll get you some beautiful flowers," said Wes, one of the workers at Beautiful Flowers.

If you want to brave the cold and thaw your loved one's heart with flowers this weekend, Beautiful Roses is set-up at multiple locations.
