It's a similar story across the Island -- weary shovelers digging out once again. By mid-morning in downtown Farmingdale, it was at least passable for drivers and pedestrians on sidewalks, parking lots and roads.

There was over a foot of snow last week that has frozen over in many areas, and Monday's digout continued with even more fresh powder on top of it.
It's a similar story across the Island -- weary shovelers digging out once again. By mid-morning in downtown Farmingdale, it was at least passable for drivers and pedestrians on sidewalks, parking lots and roads.
In North Babylon, Walter Cheslock helped shovel his elderly neighbor Peter's driveway. In Cheslock's own driveway, it was a sheet of ice.
"I thought I gave my neighbors a good laugh yesterday, I tripped and I'm laying flat on my back in a snow pile. Glad I wasn't hurt because no one came out to help," says Cheslock.
There are still some patches of ice on the sidewalks in Babylon Village, but business owners told News 12 they feel like landlords and that the village did a good job for the most part cleaning up after Sunday's storm.
"Usually they do a very, very good job, it's easy to travel in the streets right after a storm," says Gina Gonzalez, of Sol y Luna.
While some people say they've had enough snow this winter, others like Cheslock say bring it on. He'll likely get his wish, with a wintry mix on tap for Tuesday and a possible storm incoming on Thursday.
For all of the shovelers out there, doctors say that shoveling heavy snow can pose a risk of heart attack. They say to make sure to take breaks and to drink plenty of water.
