Photos: Another Storm Impacts Massapequa's Morning Commute

Yet another storm hits the area.

Another week another chance to dig out.

Snow fell on the Massapequas early Friday morning making for a difficult morning commute.

The National Weather service predicted about 3 to 5 inches of the white stuff, and that's about what we got as 3.3 inches fell in Seaford, 3.5 in Plainview, while 4.9 inches fell in Woodmere.

Although Nassau Police warning drivers to be careful, area roads were passable Friday morning, Massapequa Schools did not delay their opening.

In Massapequa Park, Village Administrator Peggy Caltabiano said salt spreaders were out at 3 a.m. and had made at least one pass through all of the roads.

Town of Oyster Bay Spokeswoman Phyllis Barry said that all Town roads had been plowed at least once as well. 

Barry warned that falling temperatures could cause problems tonight. 

"The only trouble is going to be freezing," she said. "Temperatures are going to drop and stay low for the next few days, freezing whatever's on the roads."

Barry said workers will try to clear as much slush as possible, but drivers should exercise caution.
