Snowplow crews do practice run

Thursday, November 4, 2010; 11:46 PM

Metro and Montgomery County officials have rolled out their snowplows as a test for winter. Friday is the District's turn.

Crews from the Transportation and Public Works departments will meet at RFK Stadium before deploying across the city in a dry run. Officials said 250 pieces of equipment will be used as the city simulates a snow emergency.

The snow will start to fly at 9 a.m. Actually, it will be light rain, if anything, but don't be surprised when you see the plows.
