Here you go, folks. Just a few pictures of what I woke up to this morning in beautiful Tinton Falls in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Needless to say, I’m going nowhere today which works with my schedule of being on vacation this entire week. All in all, not so bad I guess. If you have somewhere to go today, you might reconsider not leaving your home – it’s horrible out there!
The pictures below are of my backyard and my front yard. The snow and ice is coming down with reckless abandon. It’s crazy out there! After working from home today, I expect that I’ll be working from home again tomorrow – it’s just too bad out there to attempt to drive across the state to get to the office.
Not that I’m complaining…
Take a look at the pictures below. How is the snow by you if you have any?
Some parts of the state had a bunch of snow dumped on them yesterday – Tinton Falls was one of those areas. You can check yesterday’s entry to see some early pictures of the snowfall. Today, I have pictures of one of my roommates climbing a tree in the front yard; his intent was to jump into the snow bank created by the plows. While he didn’t jump into the snow bank, it was a pretty funny scene.
Enjoy the SuperBowl tonight, everyone!
Today, the Monmouth University Hawks will host the Fairleigh Dickinson University Knights at the MAC Center in West Long Branch, New Jersey. I won’t be able to attend the game because I’m essentially snowed in (see pictures below)!
A few comments. First, I hate when there is a home game for Monmouth that I can’t attend. I really enjoy going to the games, hanging out in The Varsity Club before and after the game, and watching the Hawks compete against their competition. It’s a really good time (or at least I think so). Second, it’s amazing that the game wasn’t canceled (at least it hasn’t been canceled as of 10:00am today). And third – what’s the deal with all of the snow?! I heard from some of my friends in North Jersey that there are spots where the snow isn’t that bad at all. Meanwhile, down here in Tinton Falls we’ve got a foot and more to come!
My cousin was actually going to come down for the game today so he and I could celebrate our respective birthdays (he turned 29 yesterday – Happy Birthday, cousin!). Unfortunately, though, the pending snow storm canceled those plans for us. For those of you looking for some coverage of the basketball game today, you can check out the official online home of the Hawks by clicking here or check out Tony Graham at The Hawks Nest.
Anyway, since my plan for the blog today was to add a bunch of pictures from the Monmouth game that I won’t be able to attend now, enjoy some pictures from outside of my townhouse. The green arrow in one of the pictures is pointing to my car.
Last night’s blizzard dropped a ton of snow in Tinton Falls as well as the rest of the northern Jersey Shore in Monmouth County. Here are some pictures from the last few hours of my roommates and I (and the rest of the neighbors) digging out of our development in Fox Chase. It wasn’t fun – especially since my roommates and I only had a beat-up kitchen broom and ice scrapers to get ourselves out!
