I'm sure the Toms is frozen over. Probably great skating on the Navesink today (until the snow comes tomorrow... but even then it'll be a light snow, so would be easy to skate through or shovel away)

The Navesink is cool to see the ice boats racing around in this weather!


BTW ignore weather headlines about this...it's just a big Noreaster

‘Bomb cyclone’ to blast East Coast before polar vortex uncorks tremendous cold late this week

seems like John Bolaris and "social media" combined to making up these sensational headlines for storms, that you never heard before (even though many of the terms, other than slang terms, are actually used by meteorologists)

3 Winter Words You Should Know


Bombogenesis, polar vortex, and williwaw—what do these really mean?


By Angie McPherson, National Geographic

PUBLISHED


"Bombo"-what? Bombogenesis. It's not a word you expect to hear from your local meteorologist. So what is it exactly? And what's with the mishmash of strange weather vernacular over the past few months?




On Tuesday, meteorologist John Bolaris at Philly.com was the first to use the term "bombogenesis" to describe the large, fast-moving snowstorm that was heading toward the East Coast. NPR journalist Mark Memmott noticed the unusual word and wrote his own article called "What Is This Bombogenesis And Why Is It Dumping Snow On Us?" Memmott's story went viral and brought national attention to the word.

actually have a blizzard warning here, which means (not the amount of snow) but duration and wind speed!

This is Raritan bay at Keyport looking out towards Union Beach. I can't recall it being frozen over for this long without breaking up with the tide.

Beautiful picture!

My dad related driving cars out on the bay, in order to play hockey at night. That would have been up closer to Perth Amboy/Fords, and I'm sure wherever it was, is now inaccessible. But back then (late 20s/early 30s) there was a mini ice age, apparently.

All the while I lived up there, never saw the bay as it is in your picture!

I can't believe its still locked up there with all that warm rain we had last week...there's some decent tide in the creek

I am waiting for it to break up so I can move my boat back to Keyport for winter storage...hopefully, this weekend.

I was out all day fishing yesterday in that dark blue band above Allentown, PA. It was snowing the entire time I was out and they got more than 6" all told. I was amazed to see sunshine and 100% dry roads well before I got home to Phoenixville, just exactly 40 crow-fly miles to the southeast.
