NJ digs out from major snowstorm


TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey neighborhoods are humming with the sound of snow blowers and the scrape of snow shovels one day after a major storm left powdery snow across the state.

Tuesday’s storm has been followed by bitter cold temperatures and below freezing wind chills so the snow won’t melt quickly.

Motorists are advised to slow down and pedestrians are urged to use caution because roads and sidewalks are icy.

Many schools are closed and state government offices also are closed Wednesday.

Most of the snow fell in Monmouth, Mercer and Middlesex counties. Manalapan is reporting nearly 16 inches, East Windsor saw 12 inches and Piscataway received 10 inches.

New Jersey Transit trains are operating on an enhanced weekend schedule. Buses and trains are cross-honoring tickets.
