Private plow companies have been getting ready all week for the impending nor'easter.
Angelo Magliocco with Artistic Designs in Trumbull spent Friday making sure his equipment is ready for a potentially big snowstorm - checking hoses and fluids.
"Just making sure you're ready for anything that could possibly go wrong," said Magliocco.

When the storm comes, Magliocco and his crews have to make sure their trucks are ready to go, because most of their commercial clients are important health care facilities like the Smilow Cancer Center in Trumbull.
Magliocco says the key to a big storm is keeping up with the accumulations.
"You let it come down five, six inches and then it starts coming three inches an hour, you'll never be able to keep up on it. We'll have what we had in 2013, which was people stranded and stuff like that," he said.
Magliocco says he and crews like so many others across the region will be out until the storm is over.
