Anthony Perillo shovels away snow that plows keep throwing onto his property, even though there are no houses on the other side of the LIE service road. “That’s what gets me aggravated. They just came by. Here we go again. I had this all done out.” #lisnow pic.twitter.com/uiiRYzMYXP— Rachelle Blidner (@RachelleBlidner) March 13, 2018

Kahlil Dunn and Dwayne Bryant, who help manage 6 Long Island properties, have been shoveling since 7 am. Dwayne said he loves that it snowed again. “New York State, it’s a state of all 4 seasons. I enjoy each of them.” pic.twitter.com/Pxt2SAc3oE— Rachelle Blidner (@RachelleBlidner) March 13, 2018
We appreciate your concern, but everything's OK. The small flames are switch heaters, used to prevent switches from freezing. pic.twitter.com/9285dqg1ZU— LIRR (@LIRR) March 13, 2018

JAW-DROPPING... the 06z run of the NAM 3km (last night) picked up on the EXACT placement of the two intense frontogenetic mesobands that are moving across Long Island right now. If you still doubt this model, leave. #NYwx #LIwx #NEwx #LIsnow @hoffmanrich #NAMisKing pic.twitter.com/KUu2BdTqUA— Pat Cavlin (@pcavlin) March 13, 2018

Some shots of Jericho Turnpike and Route 110 in Huntington #NY. Heavy #snow seems to be changing to rain in parts of western #Suffolk, but these roads are still slippery. #lisnow #liweather #snowstorm pic.twitter.com/Y4l4z5mfUt— Víctor Manuel Ramos (@vmramos) March 13, 2018

Snow manners? What are those? I'm glad you asked,— Emily C. Dooley (@eDooleyNoted) March 13, 2018
See all that snow on top of these cars? Clean it off before driving!! Don't sport a snowhawk. Snow can fall off when driving and obscure your view or hit another car. Dangerous and rude. #lisnow #snowmannners pic.twitter.com/Namf0l1wrY

Before heading to Melville and adding another 35 miles to the 178,000-plus on my 2006 Toyota Matrix, it’s important to fuel up. (And yes, iced coffee today! Iced coffee on easy summer days and in cold winter months!) #lisnow pic.twitter.com/YfLAQdVFIf— Edward Colby (@EdwardBColby) March 13, 2018

Nothing like seeing the first snow plow of the day clear a parking lot -- in the case outside Barnes & Noble in Carle Place -- to let you know Nassau County isn't going to get off that easy today. pic.twitter.com/tUJRuo5MR5— Josh Stewart (@JoshNASCARWWE) March 13, 2018
Are you heading into work today? The third nor'easter to impact Long Island in under two weeks could bring three to 12 inches of snow, according to forecasters. Here, a crew is shown cleaning slushy snow from the walkways of the Long Island Rail Road station in Ronkonkoma. #LongIsland #LISnow #Snow #SnowDay #Noreaster
