Road crews were already hard at work Wednesday night preparing for Thursday's snowfall with salt, sand and plows that are ready to go.
Islip Town Department of Public Works Commissioner Tom Owens says crews, trucks, salt and sand are ready to go for a storm that News 12 is projecting could dump 8 inches of snow on the Island.
To give the plow trucks the space to clear the snow from the town's 1,200 miles of roads, Owens is asking residents to move their cars before the snow piles up.
"A lot of people get frustrated, especially our seniors, because we have to get the road plowed curb to curb," says Owens. "We don't get any pleasure of pushing that snow back into your apron, but if you could possibly wait until we're done, we do have to get it off the road, we apologize in advance for pushing it back in there."
