Your reaction: Pre-Halloween snow hits N.J., knocking out power
Snow in October? It happened in New Jersey with accumulations of a few inches to over a foot in some places. The storm also knocked out power for 700,000 homes and businesses, and some may be without electricity and heat until later this week.
- New Jersey residents reported in on Monday about the power situation in their towns and when it may be restored. Some also were without cable or Internet too.
