After a fairly snowless winter, it seems that over this weekend the weather forecast has made up for the previous snow scarcity with the emergence of Winter Storm Jonas. Set to hit most of the Eastern Coast of the U.S., Winter Storm Jonas ended up being a doozy, especially for many parts of Long Island. Hicksville in Nassau County reported the highest snow totals reaching just shy of 30 inches with 29.6 inches. Then over in Suffolk County, Southampton accumulated the least amount of snowfall with 14.5 inches. Curious about how much snow other places around the Island received?
