The Setauket-East Setauket area saw the most accumulation in Suffolk County during the island’s first snowstorm of the year, early reports show.
The National Weather Service reported the North Shore hamlet saw around 8.7 inches from the overnight snowfall. The City of Glen Cove saw the highest totals in Nassau County with 9.3 inches.
Some Long Islanders like Frank Bucalo, 65, of Shirley thought it was just going to be just an overnight dusting.
“I’m estimating I had about four inches on the car,” he said, while brushing off his car this morning. “I didn’t expect it was going to be that much.”
While he said he can “take or leave” the snow his snowbird relatives were really enjoying the winter wonderland left by the storm.
“My brother’s up from Florida, hasn’t seen snow in probably 20 years, going to go out and play,” he said.
