TORRINGTON, CT (WFSB) -

Valentine's Day is one of the biggest holidays for florists, but Winter Storm Easton is putting a kink in their plans. 

Florists were in high gear on Wednesday getting your orders ready for the big day.

"Holding out with the weather and all, we are doing great," said Joann Graziani of Moscarillo's Garden Shoppe in Torrington.

Extra workers were being brought in at Moscarillo's Garden Shoppe for the Valentine's Day deliveries. They have more than 100 flowers to get out Thursday alone, when the state is expected to be hit by a nor'easter.

"It's kind of difficult. We do have four trucks going out tomorrow," Graziani said. "We hope Mother Nature will cooperate with us."

The employees at Moscarillo's Garden Shoppe ordered 3,000 roses for just Valentine's Day. They'll have 400 deliveries on Friday and workers said they will get there.

"It will take a little bit longer than usual, but we will be there," Graziani said.

Their stress level savior is that the snow will likely stop falling early Friday.

"We got that little bit of time to get it plowed out for our drivers and get it going," Graziani said.

Customers should not be alarmed if flowers are a little late. Drivers will likely be taking it slow on the roads.
