The wet roads and cold temperatures created slick conditions across Long Island this morning.
Thunderbolt 12 was in East Setauket and Setauket where overnight residents said it had been almost 48 hours since the snow started, and they had not seen a plow yet until early this morning.
The Town of Brookhaven said this storm was a challenge because they had less equipment and help because of the pandemic.
Residents say this isn't the first time it's taken days to get the roads clear, and it's dangerous and wrong to keep them waiting so long. “The last storm was 24 hours, this one was 48 to get plowed. They know the neighborhood. They know it's one way in, one way out. You are pretty much stranded and I just don't get it,” says Ed Hill, of East Setauket.
