Yesterday, Thursday, January 4, the Hamptons got hit with its first snow storm of the season—and the calendar year. With what started as a winter storm warning then progressed up to a blizzard known as a “bomb cyclone,” going from an anticipated 5 to 8 inches of snow to an increased 8 to 12 inches, with actual snowfall varying across the East End.

The Hamptons experienced heavy snow and winds for the entirety of Thursday, starting in the early morning and continuing on into the evening.

Most of the East End was totally shut down due to the blizzard, including schools and businesses. The roads were dangerous—not only with the sheer volume of snow, but because of the high winds, snow was constantly being blown and causing decreased visibility.
