Report from Thomas Humphrey: "Snow was a foot deep in Amityville at 6 a.m. today."

 Report from Babylon Village Mayor Ralph Scordino: “I took a trip around theVillage and we are seeing a lot of blacktop, which is good. With between 14 and 18 inches of snow, I think Skip and his crew of guys have been out there and did a great job. A lot of the snow has been piled near the railroad and will be later moved to other locations. Any resident who has any problems can call the Highway Department at 669-4878 or my office at 669-1212. If we are not there, leave a message.”

Report from Barbara and Joe Guidice, Amityville: While other neighbors are using their snow blowers today, Joe is using "The Wovel", what we'll call a manual snowthrower.  It works just as well, if not better than the typical snowblower and makes much less noise!  All you need is some upper body strength for this snow-thrower.  Hope you enjoy this.
