Winter Storm "Jonas" Dumps Nearly 30" of Snow on Livingston

Article Image Alt Text
A "monster" snowstorm dubbed Winter Storm Jonas raged up the Eastern Seaboard on Saturday, January 23, dumping nearly three feet of snow on parts of New Jersey, and burying Livingston under 28 to 30 inches of the white stuff. "It was hard to get a more exact number, due to high winds and drifting," noted Mike Anello, superintendent of the Livingston Department of Public Works (DPW). "But we definitely got 28 inches, maybe 30 in some spots." The official snowfall amount recorded at Newark Airport was 28 inches. Morris Plains claimed the highest snowfall in New Jersey, with a total of 33 inches; this was just one inch shy of the state record, set in Cape May in 1899.

Girls’ Track and Field Team Competes in NYC; Pole Vaulters Take First and Third Place at FDU

Article Image Alt Text
The bulk of the Livingston High School (LHS) girls' track and field team travelled over the George Washington Bridge into New York City to compete at the New Balance Track and Field Center, home of the Millrose Games. It is considered by many as the fastest indoor surface in the world. The center played host to hundreds of New Jersey high school runners and jumpers who were there to compete in freshman, novice, and varsity events. The team filed into the center and up the winding stairs, past the plaques of records lining the wall to the balcony seats where they would await their chance to challenge other high school athletes in their age class. Meanwhile, just over the bridge in Teaneck, the pole vaulters and shot putters competed at Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU).

Safety After the Storm

Mother Nature sure does make herself known when she wants to. Just when we started to believe that we could tip-toe through the winter months without any actual "winter," she gave us a loud wake-up call this past weekend! For some, snow creates beautiful scenery – a winter wonderland. For others, the landscape looks more like a frozen wasteland. Regardless of which image suits your fancy, the clean-up after the storm requires work and we all need to pitch in to make our town a safer place post-Winter Storm Jonas.
