Snowplow drivers in Warren County were gearing up for the snow like many others around the Capital Region.
A lot of the crews were already out on the road before the snow started.
The Department of Public Works superintendent in Glens Falls, Tom Girard, assures they are fully staffed and ready.

“We’ll be all over the city. We have a truck in each ward. We do the mains, the hills. We salt and sand first,” said Girard.
He also says the number of trucks on the road depends on how much snow falls.
“We get called in early in the morning,” said Courtney McGarr, a snowplow driver, and the only woman on the team. “We load up salt, we go out and we start plowing the roads, make sure it’s safe, and good to go.”
