Depending on where you live between Blue Point and West Sayville your driveway and yard likely has anywhere from 10.2 inches of snow (Sayville) to 14 inches (Blue Point), according to totals provided by the National Weather Service.

Long Island MacArthur Airport recorded 11.2 inches in Ronkonkoma.

Snowfall totals across Suffolk County reached highest numbers in Selden and North Bablyon, with 14.5 inches.

Frigid temps will continue through Thursday, according to Tim Morrin, meteorologist with the National Weather Service office at Upton.

On Wednesday morning, temperatures hovered around seven degrees, with a wind chill index of minus 14. Highs on Wednesday are expected to reach 15 degrees and Wednesday night, expecting a low of one degree above zero with wind chill values as low as minus 11.

Thursday will dawn partly sunny with a two-out-of-ten chance of a snow shower in the afternoon, Morrin said. The highs on Thursday will only reach 20 degrees, with wind chills as low as minus 11. 

Frosty temperatures will blanket all of Long Island and New York City equally, according to the NWS. "It's an equal opportunity air mass," Morrin said.

As Long Island shovels out from the second blizzard event of 2014, Patch would love to hear how local town and county snow removal response has been in your neighborhood, so write in the comments below or email us at Judy.Mottl@Patch.com.

We'd also  love to spotlight your snow fun photos since all schools are closed due to the weather. Email them to the editor at Judy.Mottl@Patch.com.

Global Warming alarmists are desperately trying to separate You from your $$$ to "save the planet". What the United States and Canada are experiencing right now is making global warming alarmists such as Al Gore look quite foolish. The following are 10 of Al Gore’s stupidest global warming quotes… #1 In 2008, Al Gore boldly declared to a German audience that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.” (Needless to say, that did not happen. In fact, the ice cap in the Arctic actually got larger this year.) #2 “CO2 is the exhaling breath of our civilization, literally. … Changing that pattern requires a scope, a scale, a speed of change that is beyond what we have done in the past.” (Actually, without carbon dioxide life on earth would not exist.) #3 “The planet has a fever. If your baby has a fever, you go to the doctor. If the doctor says you need to intervene here, you don’t say, ‘Well, I read a science fiction novel that told me it’s not a problem.’ If the crib’s on fire, you don’t speculate that the baby is flame retardant. You take action.” (It sounds like what Al Gore really needs is more cowbell.) #4 During a speech at NYU Law School in 2006, Al Gore made the following statement: “Many scientists are now warning that we are moving closer to several “tipping points” that could — within as little as 10 years — make it impossible for us to avoid irretrievable damage to the planet’s habitability for human civilization.” #5 “Here is the truth: The Earth is round; Saddam Hussein did not attack us on 9/11; Elvis is dead; Obama was born in the United States; and the climate crisis is real.” #6 “The interior of the earth is extremely hot – several million degrees.” (It actually peaks out at about 11,000 degrees.) #7 “There is an air of unreality in debating these arcane points when the world is changing in such dramatic ways right in front of our eyes because of global warming.” #8 “It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.” #9 “The survival of the United States of America as we know it is at risk. And even more — if more should be required — the future of human civilization is at stake.” #10 “We ought to approach this challenge [of global warming] with a sense of profound joy and gratitude: that we are the generation about which, a thousand years from now, philharmonic orchestras and poets and singers will celebrate by saying, they were the ones that found it within themselves to solve this crisis and lay the basis for a bright and optimistic human future.”
