With a nor’easter on our doorstep, early planning is the name of the game. A Blizzard Warning remains in effect until midnight.
All Town offices and schools are closed in anticipation of 18-inches of snow or more (possibly less if a rain/sleet line makes its way into our area).
The Police Department will be open, Volunteer Firefighters will be ready to roll whenever necessary and the Highway Department workers, well, I can’t say enough about the wonderful guys in the highway department who work tirelessly to make the roads safe.
The milk cooler at Shop Rite was nearly empty by 5 p.m. — does anyone really depend on milk that much during a storm?
The governor has called for a statewide travel ban, so no thruway driving once the storm is underway.
The best thing for everyone to do is settle in at home and hope we don’t get any power outages as a result of the high wind gusts (up to 50 mph) that are predicted.
If you must shovel, remember to take breaks if you get too cold or before you strain yourself. If you have a fire hydrant in front of your home, make sure to clear around it.
Enjoy your snow day.

After this storm is over, reflect on the fact that the first day of Spring is on Monday, March 20.
