Share Your Photos: Plainview's Blizzard 2013

Major storm dumped more than a foot on Plainview; share your photos here.

Plainview residents are digging out from a major winter storm that pounded Long Island and the Eastern Seaboard for a 24-hour period beginning early Friday.

The storm dumped up to two feet of snow or more on Suffolk County and about a foot-and-a-half on Plainview. Drifts range much higher. Plainview's back streets are becoming passable and most businesses are open.

Main arteries are moving through Nassau. Suffolk County was hit far worse. The LIE east of Exit 57 and other major Suffolk roadways remain closed. The parkways are open.

Your photos are vital to us; Pleases share them and let us know conditions on your street and neighborhood. Let us know what you encounter on the roads and in your neighborhoods.

2 years ago I bought my husband a gas powered snowblower that will cut through up the 2 ft of snow. We have had electric blowers but they were smaller & couldn't get through the large amount of snow that the plows dump in front of my driveway. First time he used it was yesterday. Yes, it was expensive but it was an investment in his life!

Joe, I remember that stuff because I've been gone for so long that I only know the area from memory of the way it was. Plainview/Old Betpage/Farmingdale/Hicksville is like a time capsule in my mind. In my mind, it has never changed. The picture of Morton Village posted here looks like there have been many changes there. I remember getting my hair cut in that barber shop when Bill Mazarokski hit his home run that won the 1960 world series, the barber slipped with a straight razor & nicked the back of my neck there.

Actually I've been away for 41 years. It must be global warming, because 50 years ago, this would have been a normal snowstorm for Plainview from the pictures here. We had several snow accumulations of this magnitude every year back in the 1950-60s

I didn't grow up in Plainview but I did grow up about 10 miles west of here. I have old photos where the snow is taller than I was. However, my parents, my brothers & myself all went out to shovel.

Buying a snowblower would be the best investment. Today, you can purchase one, and pay it off with interest deferred if paid up in time. Everybody could afford one, we all spend money on everything else and on some things we don't need Get real people, save your back and make your life better!!!!!!!!!!!!!
