Get Your Skates On!

Spend some time with family or friends this year skating to your heart's content!

Weather permitting, you'll find most of these spots open throughout winter and sometimes into early spring! Check out this list of both outdoor and indoor rinks that you can visit.

Sledding Fun

Get Outdoors

Get out into nature for some good old-fashioned outdoor fun! Hike up a trail or go fishing. You'll be surprised how much more you enjoy the outdoors when it's cold outside than during other seasons.

Snow Predictions for Winter on Long Island 2022


As we head into the rest of winter, many Long Islanders are curious about how much snow this season will bring. Snow may seem fun, but it can also be a hassle to deal with for commuters, homeowners, and business owners. So, we have a predicted breakdown of what Long Island can expect this year moving forward into the rest of winter.

Long Island is Expecting a Cold Start and Warm Finish

According to NY Metro Weather, the general vicinity of New York City and Long Island is expected to have a cold start to winter and then a warmer end. We can see this in how freezing it has been lately — with more snow on its way even this week. Our average snowfall is predicted for this year (about 25 inches), with some prediction numbers maybe being a little lower than usual.

However, even with the forecasts from professional experts in the meteorology field, it’s still difficult to track the exact weather patterns for the season. But, so far, what we’ve seen on the island matches the above predictions pretty well.

So, Should You Be Worried?

Long Island doesn’t have to be nearly as worried as our friends in upstate New York! While, yes, we are expecting a few more strong, snowy days here on the island, no blizzards or worse are projected for this year.

Meteorologists have predicted moderate to strong La Nina conditions, mainly affecting those near the coast. Coastal flooding is something that many Long Island residents are familiar with, even if it isn’t fun to deal with.

Keep an Eye on Forecasts

Weather is ever-changing, and even if it seems like this winter season is going along with current predictions, conditions could change. Whether it be a stronger than average La Nina storm or heavier snowfall than anticipated, always make sure you’re keeping track of the weather and making certain travel is safe.

Stay safe this season, Long Island!

Top New Year's Resolutions for 2022


2022 is in full gear, and people are choosing their New Year’s resolutions left and right. So, the statistics are in, and we have the full list of all the top resolutions people are choosing for this year; whether you’re looking for inspiration or are just curious what general goals most people have for 2022, keep reading!

Exercise More

The most popular resolution many seem to have for this year is to be more active and stay on top of exercising. Whether it’s their usual routine or trying something new, we were stuck inside for a good amount of time last year, so now is the time to ensure your body is moving!

Spend More Time With Family

With everything happening lately, it might have been too hard this past year to see your family as often as you would have liked to — at least many people seem to feel this way. This resolution was top of many people’s lists, with the hopes for safe gatherings in 2022 increasing.

Reduce Stress

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed during this time — we’re still in a pandemic! Plus, the start of the new year always feels like a busy period. Now is when to put yourself and your priorities first. This new year is the time to give yourself a break and find new ways to help reduce stress. From meditation to picking up new hobbies, find something that aids you now so that you can practice it this whole new year.

Pay Off Debt

Now is the year to make big strides towards paying off any debt you may have! Whether it’s student loan debt or credit card debt, this year can be the year you take those burdens off your back. It’s a goal that many people have in mind as we go into this new year. And something big that helps is to practice saving money.

Save Money

Are you looking to save more money this 2022? It’s easier than you think! Consider increasing your savings this year. Start small, as simple as depositing ten dollars a week into your savings account. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll get into the habit of saving. That way, as the year progresses, if you receive gift money, salary bonuses, or save money on your property taxes, you’ll already be in the habit of saving and can transfer more.

And speaking of saving money on your property taxes, we can help!
