And residents weren't the only ones preparing. City crews geared up for what could be a long night.

"We key usually off what the police department tells us. If our staff's already gone home, we'll use them to call us out. They'll monitor the situation on the bridges and overpasses. Once they start seeing a problem develop, then they'll call us and we'll get our people out," said Public Works Director Keith Henry.

If you do have to travel near Bartlesville Monday night, you are advised to take it slow. Also, the city wants to remind everybody to keep a good following distance behind their salt and sand trucks, because they will be out all through the night and Tuesday morning.
