Have You Seen the Plows? Find Out if Your Neighbors Have

Huge snow totals have area roads in rough shape.

As locals attempt to dig out their own driveways after a blizzard dumped more than 26 inches of snow in some areas, many are scratching their heads about where the town plows are. However, Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell said the plows are out and residents should stay off the roads until emergency orders are lifted.

We posed a question on Facebook asking people if they had seen any plows. Below are some of their answers; be sure to let us know in the comments when your road is plowed.

Ridge is now being plowed.

Brookhaven lost their great road fellow and whomever Romaine has in charge--like Romaine himself, has been MIA during this snow event. Shame, things used to be run so well before. Isn't the guy running, Losquadro filling in while waiting to be voted in? Not a great job review for someone who wants the job of highway supervisor in Brookhaven.

In Greenport the plows were busy all night keeping the roadways clear. Thank you.

Had to be on the LIE last night and it is scary at the last few exits. Should be closed until it is plowed.

I live in Mattituck on the state rd. ( Route 25 or Main Rd.) and I have seen so many plows and this road is clear.

As of 3pm on Monday, my road in Setauket still has not been touched by a plow. A post on News 12 by one of the private hire plows that the town uses gives a telling story about why my neighbors and I had to clear the street ourselves: "it snowed 26 inches in 2009 and nothing like this!!we dont plow for Town of Brookhaven anymore 3 yrs ago they tripled the amount of ins u would need and it was way toooo steep for my blood and 100s of others so they lost many hire ons but didnt care because it hadnt really snowed now we have a storm and I am shocked at how bad our rds are" comment posted on: Brookhaven Deputy Supervisor Panico: Unplowed roads 'unacceptable' longisland.news12.com
