No More Snow (We Hope)
Asked about the challenge, Fury said weather forecasting technology has improved, but dealing with the snow still comes down to use of shovels and plows.
The Office of the New Jersey State Climatologist has posted statistics for the 20 storms of the winter of 2013-2014. The number of storms exceeds those of many previous years. Snowfall totals just for Plainfield are not always recorded, as the city no longer has a volunteer weather observer. There are totals for other Union County towns.
For 2011, the statistics include the Hallowe'en storm shown in this NASA photo.
Maybe now that we are a week into Spring, it's safe to put those snow shovels away and line up the garden tools.
