Thanks, but no thanks.

Suffolk County has declined New York City's offer of snow plows to help the Long Island county dig out from the most recent storm.     

County spokesman Mark Smith says the county is grateful for the "magnanimous offer.'' But he says the city's assistance won't be needed because "the county roads are in great shape.''     

Up to 12 inches of snow fell on some parts of the city on Wednesday. The cleanup went so well that Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he planned to lend assistance and equipment to harder-hit Suffolk County, which saw as much as 17 inches.

Meanwhile, parts of Connecticut continue to dig out from a record snowfall of more than 20 inches.
