OKLAHOMA CITY - It's all hands on deck for city crews working to salt city streets.

As the temperature drops, roads could become slick and dangerous.

Whatever happens with this weekend's storm, most of us are ready for spring.

One "Lady Liberty" on northwest 23rd street has two hopes.

The first that people get their taxes done at Liberty Tax, and the other, that winter will finally come to an end.

"I think it's gonna get warmer, after this storm goes through I'm hoping it stays warm," said Amber Denney. "It's almost spring ain't it?"

With a slight mist falling throughout the day, the roads got wet, although not terribly treacherous.

Still, city crews are ready.

30 city trucks are filled with salt prepared to hit the streets.

Crews have already pretreated bridges and overpasses.

As always the crews will focus specifically on the main streets, treating the city's emergency snow routes.

The timing of the storm may help most drivers stay safe.

"The advantage is tomorrow is Sunday and people can stay home for the most part, but Monday may be difficult so we're going to work has hard as we can to get roads in as good of condition as possible," said Oklahoma City spokesperson Kristy Yeager.
