For Plow Workers, Thank Yous Out of Frustrations

While locals were not pleased that roads took so long to get plowed, few faulted the workers pulling 14-hour shifts to get the snow cleared.

It may have taken days for Smithtown roads to be plowed, with officials citing equipment problems, unusually high snow totals and road icing as reasons for the delay.

But while frustrations with town leadership ran high, most members of the community wanted to thank the workers who were indeed out on the roads plowing for hours and hours. See some of their comments from our Facebook page below. Also if you want to thank anyone who helped you in the storm, maybe a neighbor who helped shovel you out, please leave them in the comments below.

Thank you to the plow drivers that were driving with their plows down. Glad that the sighseeing drivers were in the minority. Hopefully, they will be disciplined.
