Been hearing the same old song from my co-workers that live out east. They say a plow hasnt touched their roads. They cant get out. Guess this is that one time where getting milk and bread was legit.

No streets in my section of West Islip have been plowed by Town DPW plows but a member of the fire department was nice enough to plow our street for us ... if it was not for him though we would not be plowed yet.

Islip fails for every storm. We normally go at least a day or so before we are plowed.

My area was plowed so to speak. Badly done, but they came around. What I can't understand is how they screwed up North Ocean Ave. yet got some backroads more clean by me.

My area was ploughed too, but they left just a single drivable lane on my street.... its just crazy.

Guys I was just wondering.... is it going to get tougher and tougher to shovel as time passes ? I am expecting company this weekend and I need to clean my driveway and the area in front on the road, so I was just curious. Should I just do it after work today ?

Yes. You're going to have partial melting during the day and then freezing up at night...ice is much harder to shovel than freshly fallen snow. That's why I get every last lick of snow off of my car and out of my path once the snow stops. It's not worth waiting, unless you see it's supposed to be 40 degrees at night for the next few days..then there's no freezing going on.

Yes, definitely do it. Like dman said, you'll get some ice. Some will melt, but not much. This will stick around for at least a good week.

You could always have the company bring their own shovels and shovel for you.

Town of Babylon here did a great job and they are still at it today. I've been hearing the opposite from friends and family that live out East. They are stranded in their homes. That is not right.

Hmm, I'll have to build a mini snowman on top of your car and then cover it with water so it'll freeze and stay up there.
