The New York State Department of Transportation started their winter prep months ago, stocking salt sheds and tuning up plows.


Now that snow is in the forecast, plenty of people are hurrying to get their vehicles in shape.

NewsChannel 13 spoke with the manager of Warren Tire in East Greenbush. He says now that it's getting cold enough for snow, people want to get in before the really heavy stuff starts to come down.

At the East Greenbush Warren Tire, they're booked solid until the middle of next week.
