HUNTINGTON STATION - Long Islanders spent the day digging out from another snowstorm that blanketed the tri-state area overnight, leaving more than 16 inches of snow in parts of the Island.

Plow operator Chris Ufholz says this was the worst storm he's seen so far this winter.

"The sleet made it the worst, definitely," he says.

Some residents, however, say the plows were the problem, dumping mounds of snow along the roads.

Sandra Raines, of Huntington Station, uses a motorized scooter to get around. She says leaving her apartment on days like this is frightening, but she didn't have a choice but to brave the sleek roads to get to the pharmacy.

Hours after the snowstorm ended, many sidewalks in Huntington Station remained covered in snow. Local business owners say the sleek roads and cold weather are hurting their bottom lines.
