Final snow update
When I went out to shovel this morning; before heading off to work - (yes, to work), another 14 inches had fallen since I finished last night. So we had a grand total of 28 inches of snow here in South Plainfield. Roads were anywhere from clear to atrocious. The plows didn't even touch my street until around 9:00 this morning, while I was working on the driveway and the walkway to the front door.
Surprisingly, near work, which is 20 miles further inland, the snowfall was approximately half or a little less than we got here. This truly was a coastal storm - the farther inland you were, the less you got. I heard on the VHF/UHF in the car that some sections of Southern New Jersey, particularly those close to the shore got really walloped, with some areas receiving close to three feet.
Hopefully, this will be THE big storm for the winter and that all the rest will be minor compared to this. If you can believe it, AccuWeather is forecasting highs on the low 50s this coming Saturday.
