COMMACK - Long Islanders spent the day scraping, plowing and shoveling the snow from Friday's storm.

Neighbors helped neighbors by snowblowing and shoveling each other's driveways and sidewalks.

While there was a lot of work to do, some took a break to have a little fun. Mike Matos and his daughter Gracie, of Commack, made their first snowman of the season.

A winter storm that began Friday morning dropped up to 32 inches of snow on some parts of Long Island.
