: Snow in the Rain - The Jersey Shore's Latest Winter Storm

Snow in the Rain - The Jersey Shore's Latest Winter Storm

New Jersey is in the midst of it's second major winter storm.  The snow began last night.  This is what it looked like at 8am.

There is a blizzard warning in effect, and it's expected we'll have accumulation of up to 25 inches.  The worst of the storm will hit early this afternoon with increasing winds up to 40 to 50 miles per hour, out of the north-northeast.  That's not good news for long Beach Island, already suffering severe from fall and winter beach erosion.

The National Weather Service has also posted a flood warning for the coastal areas of the Jersey.  High tide this afternoon is expected to bring the most widespread tidal flooding.  High tides today will occur between 1:30pm and 3pm.  The high tide occurs later in the coastal wetlands and lagoons. The wave action during the high tide is the cause of beach erosion.

There's not much to do now, it's snowing too hard to even think about digging out, so we'll sit back and enjoy the ride!

Beautiful pictures!  I'm so sorry you guys are having such rough weather.  Look for ways to make it pleasant.  I love to quilt and when it's too bad to go outside, that's what I do.  It brings a calm to my soul.  Hope you have a craft or something special to occupy your time during the snowstorm.

Snow is beautiful, ice is deadly!!  I live in Delaware.

Good Luck up there we are currently in the same boat without a 4x4!  But it gives us more time to work on our blogging.

If you have any questions about financing in the NJ, NY market let me know because I have a office up there.


Good Luck and stay warm

Laura...I do feel sorry about those hampered by this storm.  We here in Minnesota are better equipt to handle the large volumn of snow, but 20+ inches is a lot no matter where you are.

I wouldn't know what to do in this situation. I heard you guys were in for a serious dose of the white stuff, but a snow flurry makes us shut the town down.

I feel for you. We've got snow today, though haven't had any for a month, it seems. And today's only supposed to be 3-6 inches. So, dig in, stay warm, and think spring!

I am so over that kind of weather!

It's without question beautiful. But the older I get, the less I want to spend time in it!

Hope you fared well, didn't lose power, and are able to get out and about today.

We are scheduled for another snow storm. This is a great winter and 2010 is going to be a great year.  I drove around when I was told to stay home. Here's the video of my trip around town:
