D.C.'s turn to simulate snow

Metro and Montgomery County officials have rolled out their snow plows as a test for the upcoming winter. Friday is D.C.'s turn.

Crews from the District's departments of transportation and public works will meet up at RFK Stadium before deploying across the city in a dry run. Officials said 250 pieces of equipment will be used as the city simulates a snow emergency.

The snow will start to fly at 9 a.m. Well, actually, it will be light rain, if anything, but don't be surprised when you see the plows.

I realize that copy editors are in short supply... so please take this as well-meaning assistance from the reading public. It's "simulate", not "stimulate", that you need in the link, folks. Different meaning entirely.
