LAWTON, Okla._Love is in the air and flowers are flying off the shelves. A local flower shop owner said today's business is booming in the last-minute rush before Valentines Day.
"Valentine's Day... we do in one day what we would normally do in a week or a week and a half," said Ramon John, owner of Flowers by Ramon. This is his 54th Valentine's Day to be in the flower business.
