Over the last two days, we’ve been having a snow, sleet, and rain mix on the East End of Long Island as a result of the fourth nor’easter to hit the northeastern US this month: Winter Storm Toby. Yesterday, March 21, public schools closed early and many local businesses followed suit, giving residents a partial snow day.
According to the National Weather Service, we were due to expect anywhere between 6 and 12 inches of snow, and the NWS has since extended the winter storm warning from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. today, March 22. But parts of the island certainly haven’t gotten that high of snow accumulations. It’s been consistently snowing, but much of the wet snow has melted upon arrival.
With the half snow day that eastern Long Island had yesterday, we want to see all your snowmen, snow angels, or how you spent your day indoors enjoying the warmth from your fireplace. Send your best snow day photos to firstname.lastname@example.org!
