  1. We picked up our girls from a sleepover at Grandma’s house in Bergen County this morning and the roads were awful. Very slippery.

  2. im terrified of driving in these conditions. My plans tonight were to go into NYC to celebrate the new year. Im not even gonna risk it. Is there any last minute ideas for NYE around the bloomfield/montclair area that my husband and i can do?????? EEK! Help!

  3. Provided things clear up a bit (should be partly cloudy at midnight), the moon should be clearly visible almost straight up at midnight with Mars just a little beneath it to the east.
    Devon, what conditions? Things were fairly snowy earlier, but it’s cleared since then and driving is fine. However, if you are truly terrified, please do not drive, as a hesitant driver is just as dangerous as a reckless one.
