What East Brunswick Needs You to Know About Today's Storm


EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Last night, East Brunswick Mayor Brad Cohen issued an advisory for the approaching winter storm. Although the weather forecasts called for a significant snow storm to impact our community starting late Monday night and going all day Tuesday, the storm has manifested into an icy, windy weather event that is possibly more dangerous. 

Says Cohen in a report issued by the East Brunswick Police Department, "Snow will diminish by Tuesday evening. There may be widespread power outages due to the weight of the snow on tree limbs and powerlines. The threat for power outages will be less where temperatures are mostly below 30 degrees during the snow.

A "Blizzard Warning" means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds and poor visibility is likely. Whiteout conditions may make travel extremely dangerous.

Do not travel. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. Keep an extra flashlight, food, and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.….. If you get stranded...stay with your vehicle.


  • Twp. Ordinance prohibits parking on any street during a snow event; this is to ensure that we can safely and efficiently operate our snow removal equipment.  Enforcement will occur for non-compliance.                      
  • Please remove any other obstacles on the street such as basketball systems, garbage cans, recycling can, and anything that can effect snow plowing services.                
  • Please shovel out any fire hydrants in front of your house.                            
  • Please clear a path to your front door in the event that emergency workers need to access your residence.        
  • Please understand that due to continuous snow plowing operations on the roadway the bottom portion of your driveway may have to be cleaned several times.  The snow plows will be making numerous passes on the roadways and may affect any snow shoveling you may have completed.  
  • The gusty winds will have the potential to bring down tree limbs and power lines. Be prepared for the possibility of power outages and loss of heat.  Please use care if you need the use of a generator.                
  • Charge up electronic devices ahead of time and be sure to have a flashlight, portable radio and batteries.            
  • Check on elderly neighbors and relatives, especially in the event of a power outage.
  • Those that normally use Taylor Avenue to park during the week are advised not to park in the street on Tuesday and Wednesday as this will hamper snow removal and may result in summonses being issue or vehicles towed. 




All Municipal Offices are Closed on Tuesday, March 14th. 

  • Due to the winter weather, Solid Waste & Recycling Collection will be cancelled for March 14th.
  • SOLID WASTE for Tuesday, March 14th will be collected Wednesday, March 15th.   
  • RECYCLING for Tuesday, March 14th, Recycling District 7 will be collected, Saturday, March 18th.

Recycling Center is CLOSED 


All East Brunswick Public Schools are closed


Please be patient, collection on Wednesday will start with Tuesday's route then move on to Wednesday collection. Please leave items that have not been collected out to the roadway for collection for the following day. Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation.

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (Random House, 1965)


In Cold Blood is, quite simply, the grand-daddy of true crime writing, dubbed by Capote, himself, as the first non-fiction novel (although Norman Mailer argued the point when he published The Executioner's Song in 1979.) The conditions under which I read In Cold Blood for the first time were pretty weird, which was another ...
