Frustrated residents on New York's Long Island, stranded in their homes by Friday's blizzard, spent Monday calling local town officials and begging for plows to dig them out.

"For the last three days, we've been pushing people out and digging people out," said Steve Reinhardt.

Walter Doroski, who's been helping push cars through the icy, snowy mess on Wood Drive, said, "It's been horrible. This is the worst it's ever been, we haven't seen a plow truck at all."
