Readers: Plow Workers Put 'UpIslanders' To Shame

Facebook commenters gave their thank-yous to hardworking highway department workers for clearing East Hampton roads.

Some locals might be frustrated by the plowing in parts of town, but workers have been pulling long shifts to get roads cleared, and many have wanted to extend "thank yous" to those workers.

Here's some feedback we got from East Hampton Patch fans on those whose job never seems to be over during and after big snows.

Melissa Bazar gave a shout to "Mike" who helped her free her car from a snow bank. "He had a plow and it was dark out — he freed me and my young son when the car got stuck!," she said.
