    I'd say we're about 1" - 1.5" right now.

    also, i'm ready to push now; my replacement snow tire came in and they mounted it up. :D

    Slowly starting to stick when I left, wasn't enough to get the fine upstanding citizens off the street corners yet though

    Was just watching the radar, looks like dry air is coming in from the west, big dry slot in PA. Headed out in a few to open up commercials.

    Is there a website anywhere that will own up to a bad forecast during a storm? Looking at the radar it looks like this thing is winding down. Unless this thing fills in like crazy- it looks like a lot of people are going to get shafted.

    Roads were getting slick on commute between Southern Middlesex to Western Monmouth Counties; had to take two detours for closures.

    I had low expectations for this storm all along, so far it's not even living up to them.

    just spoke to a family friend whos in holmdel said theres barely anything. I thought there would def be something out there but I guess not. My apologies for putting my plow on. I knew once i did that I was gonna screw ya guys lol. If it doesnt snow anymore Id like to get out tomorrow and atleast try and get 5-10 clean ups done if possible and keep hitting them hard until they are done. Then take some time and install the strobes I bought and practice my welding

    Found out both road closures were from down poles, as expected.
    One of them was taken out by a school bus, no injuries, kids (unknown ages) will have stories to tell for years.

    school bus drivers here in Ocean Township are like nascar drivers year round. They blow by me on a side street at 40mph while we're doing lawns. Unfortunately I am always in my truck and trailer setup so I can't catch up to them to rip them out of the driver seat :)

    Snowing again here in Ocean Township. If anyone travels through Middletown this evening if they could give a weather report would be greatly appreciated

    I'm guessing four inches here.

    Hard to tell what we have here, couple inches I'd say but mostly on non-paved.

    I just went through the route and would say we have 6” in Little Falls / Totowa area. When I left Butler at 5:00 we had at least 8”. Got 5-1/2 hours in the seat so far. It’s a nice first storm of the season. I’m sitting in the truck at Quick Check with a fresh coffee. It’s coming down again now pretty good here in Little Falls.

    3.5" is my reading.
    nice little 4 1/4 hour run tonight.
    not a fat stack, but I'll take it as a season opener.
