Dear Long Islander,
What a way to be welcomed by 2014 - a Winter Snow Storm! Not even a week into the New Year, Long Island has been hit with a winter storm that has left some areas buried under almost a foot of snow. Although some students were scheduled to resume class on Thursday and Friday, many were treated to an extended Winter Break, after schools were forced to close for a Snow Day. Luckily, it looks like the roads are well on their way to being cleared, and Long Island should be back to normal by the weekend - perfect timing for anyone looking to take advantage of all of the winter fun!

Winter Storm Hercules Left Lots of Snow - Find Out Just How Much!
The first winter storm of the year is also the largest of the season so far. Both Nassau and Suffolk saw heavy snowfall with totals so far reaching up to 12 inches in some towns. The LIE was closed on Friday during the early morning hours after Gov. Cuomo declared a State of Emergency, and the LIRR deployed extra manpower to clear off the stations and tracks so public transport could run as efficiently as possible in the wintery mess. Large quantities of snow will, however, force the trains to run on a weekend schedule. Many roads are still not completely clear, so caution is advised for those hitting the road today.
