A two-foot snowfall left the Town of Islip scrambling to plow roads, though officials said they are working in full swing to clear roadways as soon as possible.
The Town has called in a number of extra crews and contractors to help remove the dense and heavy snow.
"We have brought in some payloaders. The wet, heavy snow is difficult to move and we are pulling out all the stops," Supervisor Tom Croci said.
As of noon Saturday, Croci estimated that 30 percent of Islip roads were passable.
Readers on Facebook chimed in as they waited for plows.
Genevieve Cesa said she had seen "nothing on Beatrice Avenue" as of noon.
Residents of Kyme Avenue were also waiting for a plow.
A few community members reported seeing plows out, but with minimal results.
"No plows on west 2nd street. A plow did come but it got stuck and just left," wrote Kelly Perdue.
Mary Campo Albanese said "I saw one on Monroe Avenue, with the plow up! They make a lot of money and going down the street making a path is unacceptable. Give the job to people who take pride in their work!"
A few lucky readers spotted plows, particularly around Udall Road.
Are you still waiting for a plow? Please let us know in comments. We will pass it along to the town.
