In D.C., more than 200 snow plows will hit the streets as the city prepare for the upcoming winter storm.
The trucks will deploy as part of a three-pronged attack for the city's so-called "Snow Team."
First, crews applied brine and beet juice to bridges and other elevated structures to prevent ice from forming. Once the snow starts to fall, the trucks will begin spreading salt over the roadways. And if the white stuff starts to accumulate, the plows will head out, hitting the main roadways and commuter arteries before taking care of the smaller side streets.
Finally, the city is suspending its holiday tree collection during the snow team deployment.
