The man in charge of the city's storm clean-up efforts is urging people to stay home tonight and find off-street parking if possible.
"We had everything ready to go when we left work yesterday," said William Wright, director of streets, parks and flood control while out on the streets with his co-workers this afternoon.
He said the crews were working before the storm fully started and will work overnight if necessary.
Wright urged people to stay home unless going out is absolutely necessary because the fewer cars on city streets, the better for public safety and snow plowing.
According to Wright, the clean up would also be more thorough and faster with fewer parked vehicles to be plowed around.
"If they can park off-street, that would be very helpful," he said.
