myveronanj-sleds(2)Woot, woot!! It’s official: Tomorrow, Thursday, is another snow day for Verona public schools! These sledders spotted in Verona Park today will get another go-round tomorrow.

If they can make their way across town, that is. We ran into a VHS senior more accustomed to driving on his way out of the park this afternoon who groused: “You don’t realize how big this town is until you have to walk it.”

The National Weather Service is warning of blizzard conditions continuing through 6 a.m. Thursday, with additional snow falling at the rate of 1 to 2 inches per hour and wind gusts of 40 to 45 mph. There are accidents by the hundreds, Newark Airport is closed and bus lines are shutting down for the evening as we write.

Closer to home, Essex County has declared the county to be in state of emergency, which means your car can be ticketed and towed if it is parked on a county road like Fairview Avenue and Grove Street. And remember: Verona code mandates that your sidewalk be cleared of snow within 24 hours after the snow stops.

But let’s enjoy the fun while we can. And so we ask: What are YOU doing to celebrate the white stuff, and the freedom?
