The main roads, including Montauk Highway and Middle Road,
between Blue Point and West Sayville were clear sailing and light on traffic as of mid-day Thursday, and a few store owners reported foot traffic for snowstorm
supplies had been light.
“A few people were in early, early for bags of ice melt,” said a clerk at the Sayville 7-Eleven, but the morning was mostly quiet.
But he expects the day to end differently.
“We will start seeing a lot of people in here tonight if the snow really comes,” noting the store is popular place for plow truck drivers to stop in for refreshments.
The parking lot wasn’t even half full at Brinkmann True Value Hardware in Sayville, but the Blue Point location seemed a bit busier with shoppers picking up items such as shovels and ice melt bags.
Downtown Sayville was quiet as well with few shoppers seen walking as lunch time approached though the Stop and Shop lot seemed a bit more busier.
Side streets were already covered in snow and a bit icy in most areas though a few town sand trucks were seen on the highways.
