Could we see a white Christmas this year? Wichita Falls city officials are preparing just in case.

You may remember Christmas 2009 when several inches of snow fell. This week city leaders met to prepare for a similar scenario which could sweep through our area early next week. 

Fire crews will be on standby, street crews will have 8 chat spreaders, 3 graders, 3 snowplow equipped dump truck, backhoes and loaders prepared and in place to clear roads. 

Officials say the first areas that will be cleared in case of a freezing event will include hospitals, fire stations, the police department, ambulance headquarters and other city offices.
