Dear Long Islander,
What a week! Yet another winter storm has come through, and left Long Island buried in about a foot of snow, and it seems as though the cold snap isn't quite over yet. Arctic winds are making the freezing temperatures feel even colder - so be sure to bundle up if you're heading out, the wind chill can create a dangerously cold environment. Luckily, Long Islanders are used to the cold winters, and we've got plenty of ways to cope - there's indoor fun and entertainment to keep us amused until the weather warms up.
