Nor'easter Closes Local Schools Thursday

Storm expected to bring a foot of snow to the area.

While the sun had yet to go down on Wednesday without a drop of precipitation to hit the roads, local schools decided to take a pre-emptive strike on the approaching nor'easter and shut their doors Thursday.

Washington Township Schools and the West Morris Regional High School district made the decision just before 5 p.m., as did many other area schools, with anywhere between six and 18 inches of snow, freezing rain and ice forecasted to blanket the area. 

The storm comes just a week after all local schools were forced into two closings and two delayed openings to start the month, as snow continues to accumulate in the area.

On another Storm Related blog, from Bergen County, the discussion degenerated into a debate about allowing shopping on Sunday. Some of these people just can't stay on topic.

Good call by the schools re closing today. By getting the word out early, they gave residents the chance to make arrangements for their children.

Latest weather update from Morris County OEM is predicting 3-6" more snow between tonight and tomorrow morning. What did we do to make the weather gods so angry with us?
