Plows Making Their Way Through Commack

Main roads in the area are becoming more mangeable, but side streets are still an issue for many.

Pavement is slowly coming back to the surface in Commack after the area was walloped with 29.1 inches of snow.

According to residents, plows were seen at Mayfair Shopping Center, Burr Road, Dovecote, Wheatfield, Shinbone, Kings Park Road, Fisher and parts of Townline Road.

Residents also said that the Smithtown side of Commack is looking more manageable than the Huntington side.

"My block looks great! As usual, town of Smithtown has always been good with plowing my area," Laura Caravella commented on Facebook.

However, much of Commack, including many side streets are still loaded with a heavy blanket of white as of 4 p.m. Saturday.

The snow has caused problems not just for residents, but for removal crews as well.

Commack Patch Facebook fan Madelyne Lucchese said a plow was stuck on Donna Lane and Jeanne Place for about 20 minutes. "Poor guy. Just made it out," she said.

Many roads including Commack Road and Indian Head Road are still problem areas.

Residents said they're trapped on Bowman and Huntsman Lanes, Sugarwood, Country Woods, Tara Lane, White Birch, Country Estates and other smaller streets. 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday morning that extra plows and crews from New York City and Nassau County would be sent to Suffolk County.

The Town of Huntington closed all roads Saturday morning so that emergency workers and crews could get through.

For a main road, Commack Road is horrible! Where are all the plows? I didn't see one as I travelled from Vanderbilt all the way to Jericho Tpke.

Our street in East Northport finally got a plow late Saturday evening, with the plow jockey putting great effort into blocking all the driveways and mailboxes that residents had already cleared out. It took 2 of us about 2 hours with shovels, ice picks and a snowblower to get our driveway partially reopened. Many streets are still one lane only - kind of sort of, late Sunday. Larkfield Road had about 1 1/2 lanes open in each direction between Cedar Rd. and Jericho Tpke, with some spots barely 1 lane each way. Hey, maybe Big Bill Naughton out to actually make a public appearance and check out what the plows are, and are not doing!
