Several inches of snow are forecast for parts of Monmouth and Ocean counties Friday, and their public works departments are preparing for it.
More than 30 trucks at the DPW headquarters in Howell were readying to tackle winter's first significant storm in this region. 
"We are very ready. We are getting plows set up right now, getting them fixed up. We have brine tanks out on the roads," said Howell Township Public Works employee Brian Greenfield.  
Meanwhile at Thomas Hurst's new hardware store in Brick Township, customers stocked up on the usual winter storm essentials. 
People in the Point Pleasant borough are also preparing for tomorrow's storm. 
"I did salt around my building. I didn't have a shovel this time, and I wanted to be prepared," said Jean Mitchell. 
Monmouth and Ocean counties could see anywhere from 3-6 inches of snow tomorrow.
