Trucks from New York City's sanitation department were on the roads all day, plowing and spreading salt to keep roads clear. Trash and recycling collection will remain delayed as cleanup efforts continue.

The storm will not be the last of winter weather we see this week, as a blast of frigid arctic air moves into the area this week and more snow will be possible on Tuesday and Wednesday.
