At the Arlington Trade Center, the headquarters for the county's army of snow trucks, the trucks are parked and their drivers have been sent home to rest.

They'll be back here at 4 a.m. tomorrow, treating the roads with salt and magnesium in preparation for the snow storm.

Even with the pre-treatment, Arlington is warning residents it could take at least 36 hours to clear out their streets.

A county spokesperson says residents should move their cars off the street now to make it easier for the snow plows.
