An annual neighborhood garage sale was not about to let a little snow slow them down.

The May snowstorm that struck the metro Thursday caused a little extra work for Clive residents looking to make a few extra bucks.

Despite having to put up tents to keep their items out of the elements, homeowners say the crowds have been pretty good.

Gary Smith says he had about 100 people stop by before the noon hour, but compared to year’s past he says he’d rather have rain.  “We’ve had rain but we think rain is a little bit easier to deal with when you have to shovel to have a garage sale.”

The annual sale in the Country Club neighborhood runs through Saturday.
