The winter of 2013-2014 brought a series of snowfalls and low temperatures to Long Island, but not in such great amounts that the highways were blocked by the snow. How many Snow Days did Seaford schools experience? Maybe four. The above photo of March 3, 2014, shows the accumulation when three inches were predicted.

On October 22, 2013, Wantagh resident and volunteer fireman (former captain) delivered a informative, interesting history of the Wantagh Fire Department at a meeting of the Wantagh Preservation Society. Sad to relate, he passed away the last week of January, 2014. His obituary, published in Newsday 1.29.2014, is linked here.
