East Hampton Town Highway Superintendent Stephen Lynch and his crew continued to clear roads on Monday amidst rain and poor visibility.
"It's sloppy out here," Lynch said on Monday morning.
The good news is that the rain is helping to break down the "hard packed" snow on the roads.
The bad news was the rain — which seemed to let up by Monday afternoon — was making it more difficult to workers with the Long Island Power Authority to repair downed wires and replace broken poles, Lynch said.
His department, meanwhile, is continuing to drop salt and sand — even on the private roads, thanks to an emergency order from the town supervisor. Lynch said the town wants to make sure that if emergency vehicles need to get to residences on private roads the roads are clear.
"Tomorrow we'll start hauling snow," to free up parking spaces and parking lots, he said. The snow piles will be placed at town beaches.
