The storm is expected to tapper off at about noon today. More then 2 feet of snow will have been dumped on Passaic County with estimates as high as 30 inches. The State Of Emergency stays in effect through out the morning rush hour. If you don’t need to go outside in this blizzard please stay off the roads.





Winter storm could slow Tuesday ride home in NJ

6 01 2009

TRENTON, N.J. – Snow and ice threaten to slow Tuesday’s ride home across New Jersey.

The National Weather Service says snow and sleet will fall over the state later in the day and throughout the night before changing to rain.

Winter storm warnings will be posted for Hunterdon, Somerset, Sussex, Warren, Morris and western Passaic counties. Forecasters fear the precipitation will change into freezing rain that could last past Wednesday morning’s rush hour.

As much as a half inch of ice could accumulate on trees and power lines in those counties.

Elsewhere, forecasters say a mix of snow and sleet will fall over most of the state before changing to freezing rain and rain.

Rain is most likely in south Jersey.

You Can Save A Life ; Just take a fiew minutes and wipe the Ice/Snow off your car

13 01 2008

 

Above is a picture of a car that was smashed from falling ice. Please be considerate for your fellow freinds. Please take the extra fiew minutes to clear snow or ice off your car. Please use caution when driving leave extra time.

It was unseasonably warm last week, but it didn’t keep me from encountering people who sympathized — just barely — with this column’s call to ban the kind of road hazard that we call the Snow and Ice That Fall Twice.

That’s the kind of white junk that leaves the other guy’s car or truck, hits your windshield and makes your whole life flash in front of you. You know the kind:

* The Route 17 kind that killed Ridgewood’s Michael Eastman nearly 12 years ago.

* The Route 287 kind that caused Hawthorne’s Bob and Mary Mahon to chase after the car whose icy load smashed their windshield last year.

* The Route 80 kind that ran Kinnelon’s Tara Varner and her 2-year-old off the road last month.

Shouldn’t New Jersey fine drivers whose vehicles carry snow? Currently, statute 39:4-77.1 makes it illegal only when it causes damage or injury.

Cathy Eastman understands this because the vehicle whose icy load crushed her husband’s skull was long gone by the time police arrived. Tara, Bob, Mary and most of the 2,000 readers who sent me petitions early this year also get it.

But not some folks I’ve encountered. “There are thousands of SUVs, many driven by women,” said Pequannock’s E.L. Quigley. “They can’t clean ice off the tops of their vehicles.”

Ray R. also sympathizes, but:

“Do you have suggestions for clearing … snow from an SUV that’s been out overnight WITHOUT damaging the hood, roof rack or moon roof?” asked the Fair Lawn man. “Pushing snow off is easy, but after past storms, thick solid ice and packed snow didn’t budge after the car’s heater was on for 20 minutes.”

* Run a garden hose over the car with the heater running, but do this for short periods to avoid cracking the windshield.

* Put old cardboard, canvas or a rug over the vehicle before it snows, and yank it off after the storm.

* Run the engine for an hour, long enough to free frozen snow, or at least to help clear it.

Some consider all this unnecessary. One woman, 72, said: “If I can clean my SUV, so can anybody.” Cathy Eastman, who’s 5 feet 1, says she does it. NorthJersey.com And Passaic News.
