snowfall in the suburbs

This is the reason that everything– “everything” being Monmouth University classes after 6:00 and my band rehearsal– was cancelled this evening.

No, New Jersey isn’t totally unfamiliar with dealing with snow. But this is the first “real” snow we’ve had all winter, so we need to shake the rust out of the salt machines and snowplows.

(Those of you who’ve had 4 feet of snow in your area and object to me calling this a “real” snow… I’m sorry. I feel for you. Move to New Jersey.)
