D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty says the city will be ready when federal workers return to work after a storm dumped 18 inches of snow on the region.

Fenty said Monday that 330 plow trucks are being deployed for the sixth time. He says it is the city's largest deployment ever. Crews will work through the night as the city prepares for federal employees to return to work Tuesday.

The D.C. Department of Public Works says it has issued 1,179 tickets for snow emergency violations, carrying a $250 fine, and towed more than 200 vehicles.
