Historic Snow Storm Strikes Garwood in October!
Snow before Halloween!? The borough and the surrounding area saw a substantial amount of snow accumulate on its streets. The historic blast from Mother Nature is the first major storm in quite some time in October, according to some, the 1920s. The National Weather Service warned Saturday evening that 8-12 inches could fall.
The premature start of Winter comes just a year after a particularly harsh season in the borough and the rest of Central Union County. This year was predicted to be a snowy winter, but, someone should tell Mother Nature it's still FALL out there!
There were multiple reports of power outages and fallen trees in the area. The Raritan Valley Line was suspended between Union and Newark Penn Station for some time during the freak snow storm.
TRICK OR SLEET??
