LIBERTY, Mo. -- 20 years is a long time -- even in terms of snowfall amounts.

City officials in Liberty say it's been since February 1993 since they've seen this much snow at once. Snowplows are at the ready for the coming storm, and city workers are spreading a combination of salt and sand as a pretreatment to streets. They're hopeful to avoid the messy roads seen across the metro last week.

City of Liberty Communcations Manager Sara Cooke says 21 public employees will be working the snowplows, helping residents dig out.

"There's a lot of snow, but it's what we do," Cooke said. "We have our snowing routes mapped out. We know the order in which we do them. It's just a matter of getting it done."
