While the storm has come to an end, the cleanup on our roads is just beginning.
Salters and sanders have been out since Wednesday morning and worked through the night to try and make the job for snowplows a bit easier of the coming days.
Roads are icy and slippery and drivers are urged to use caution. Officials from across the Island are saying you shouldn't go out on the roads just yet if you don't have to.
"Generally speaking, the public did heed the call during this storm," says Suffolk Executive Steve Bellone. "We did not see a significant amount of traffic on the roadways last night."
Nassau police say 43 vehicle accidents occurred as a result of the storm, including 17 that resulted in injuries. Suffolk police reported 117 accidents related to the storm.
