WASHINGTON | D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray says there is a full deployment of more than 200 vehicles out treating streets as the region’s first significant snowfall of the winter begins.

Speaking at a news conference Wednesday afternoon at a Department of Transportation’s salt dome as rain turned to sleet, then snow, Gray said he’s hoping to get an A-plus for his administration’s response to the first big snowfall of his tenure.

The mayor asked people to stay off the roads if they can and to be very careful if they must drive.

Interim Transportation Director Terry Bellamy asked residents and businesses to keep sidewalks clear of snow.

Public Works Director William Howland warned that wet, heavy snow can bring down power lines.
