BROOKLYN - Flurries have begun to fall on the borough, which could see several inches of the white stuff by the time the storm ends Monday.

The borough spent Sunday bracing for what could be the area's worst storm of the season that promises to be messy.

Residents hit hardware stores for shovels and salt Sunday, and store managers encouraged Sunday shopping.

In preparation for a messy Monday morning commute, salt trucks have hit Brooklyn roads, and residents say they're already preparing to wake up early to shovel.
