Today in History – October 30

On this day – today, precisely – most of central and northern New Jersey woke up to discover that anywhere from 3″ to 19″ of heavy, wet snow fell over the region yesterday as the result of a rare Nor’easter that tracked along the coast and dumped even larger amounts of snow in New York, Connecticut and the rest of New England.

The elevated portions of Somerset County were especially hard hit, with at least 8″ of global warming falling in Warren Township, which is still mostly without electricity. My house has no electric or cable service and so I’m filing this report from Nicole’s place.

Tomorrow I’ll have all the details and plenty of pictures, but for now let this one suffice to give you an idea of the extent of the damage:

This photo was taken on Stirling Road (facing north) in Warren Township, NJ  in the mid-afternoon of October 30.
