WOODBURY - Despite a breezy forecast Saturday for Long Island, many across the island agree that the conditions could have been a lot worse.

Many complained the strong winds made driving difficult and scary. However, they said the weather wasn't as horrible as they thought it would be, and were especially relieved there was no snow. Others even headed out to Jones Beach, saying they didn't mind the wind.
