Another snow day in Glen Cove


Glen Covers woke up to snow falling from the sky, landing atop the snow that was already covering the ground thanks to two other snow storms earlier this month.

Long Island and the greater New York metropolitan area are under a winter storm watch for Thursday into Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

Snow began falling Thursday morning and may continue into the evening. Accumulations of 4 to 8 inches of snow are possible.

“Travel could be very difficult. Hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute,” the NWS states.

City of Glen Cove Mayor Tim Tenke said that Glen Cove was in “good shape” Thursday afternoon. As the Department of Public Works clears the roadways of snow, Tenke is asking that residents avoid parking in the road. If they do have to park in road, he said, they should park on the odd number side.

“Our DPW workers are very hard working and they do a terrific job,” Tenke said. “We have about 30 plows and about 38 men usually scheduled, we don’t have any shortages on salt or sand and we are putting those down to aid in traction for the roads. We look pretty good.”

The Glen Cove City School District did not have to worry about calling another snow day, as students and teachers were already off thanks to winter break. The district announced that its buildings would be closed to all other personnel as well on Thursday.

There are no power outages in Glen Cove, according to the PSEG Long Island
