BROOKLYN - ? Residents faced a messy morning commute today due to the winter storm that dumped nearly a foot of snow across Brooklyn last night.

Despite the rough commute, residents across Brooklyn say the city did a better job cleaning up this storm compared to the last one.  They say roads were plowed quicker, allowing businesses to open faster and residents to get to work on time.

Despite the heavy snowfall, schools remained open today and public transportation is running on a delayed schedule.
