New York - Sanitation officials have issued a snow alert ahead of expected precipitation in New York City.

The Department of Sanitation says in a statement Thursday agencies have been alerted for possible snow beginning Thursday at 10 p.m.

Forecasters say the snow should begin to fall on Thursday night and end before the morning commute starts. Forecasters are calling for a coating of snow to 2 inches, although up to 3 inches are possible along the coast.

Officials say agencies should prepare for a potential response to snow downfall by loading salt spreaders, attaching plows and lining up personnel as needed.

In Columbus, Ohio, where I live, the residents go ballistic, with even one tenth of an inch of snow! They don't know how to drive in normal weather, and certainly don't know how to drive in snow. I miss the massive snow removal equipment, which I used to see, when I lived in Brooklyn. Out here, they have bupkis, and rarely, if ever, clear the residential streets of snow.
