Weather-weary NJ dealt another nasty blow

    Storm-ravaged New Jersey is dealing with another wild weather event, this time a nor’easter that’s dropped a wintry mix of rain, snow and sleet across the state.

    The new storm also caused another round of power outages in the state, which was battered by Superstorm Sandy last week.

     

    That system left roughly 2.76 million utility customers without power at the height of the storm. And many of those customers who had just seen their power finally restored lost it again when the nor’easter hit Wednesday.

    The new storm dropped several inches of snow in many areas and created hazardous travel conditions — especially in northern Jersey, where numerous spinouts and fender-benders were reported. Conditions might improve by this morning, but the rush hour commute could be a messy affair.
