New York City's Sanitation Commissioner has been on the job less than a year, and last week was dealing with her first major snowstorm.

It is no easy task, being in charge of clearing snow from more than 6,000 miles of roads.

Mother Nature didn't hit the Tri-State nearly as hard as she could have.

Nonetheless the biggest snowfall of the season in New York City posed the biggest challenge yet for the rookie sanitation commissioner, Kathryn Garcia, who joins us this week.

Parts of the city received about 10 inches of snow, but nothing like the blizzard we were prepared for.

Meteorologist Lee Goldberg is with us to talk about what happened with the different forecasts for the storm.
