I don't have any photos but it got pretty bad here on Long Island. I am not exactly sure how much snow we got, I live a few minutes north of Islip airport in Ronkonkoma and they said 2 different storm totals for the airport. (one channel said 27.8 inches another channel said 30.4 inches)
On the Long Island Expressway (I-495) about one hundred cars and truck were stranded (other highways had stuck cars also). Because of all the cars and trucks stuck on the roads plows could not plow the roads. I have been seeing lots of heavy duty wreckers today going past my house to help get the trucks ou of the snow. Tommorow the will have the expressway closed for 26 miles so they can finish removing the veicles and get all the snow off the road (they are bring in equipment from upstate NY to help).
