and the snow here stopped around 1:00pm. The sun came out and the skies were blue. We only had 2 or 3 inches at most. I'm not saying the situation was identical in NY-3 (Queens and Nassau) but the storm was originally hyped as being 5-9 inches and we didn't even get anywhere close to that. I'm hoping people in NY-3 were able to get to the polls without too much difficulty.
