SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ - With yet another in the seemingly perpetual chain of snowstorms expected to roll into the area late Wednesday night, Scotch Plains seems equipped to handle the next accumulation.

Although many municipalities in the area have seen their supply of road salt deeply depleted by the abundance of snow events over the last two months, Scotch Plains appears to be in good shape.

"I had asked the township manager (Jerry Giaimis) at our conference meeting on the 4th if we had adequate salt on hand, and he responded that we do," Scotch Plains Mayor Kevin Glover said on Tuesday.

A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for Union County from late Wednesday night through late Thursday night for 4 to 8 inches of snow and winds that could gust up to 35 mph.

Scotch Plains-Fanwood district schools have already used up more than their allotted amount of snow emergency days, and have scheduled one of the days initially slated to be part of spring vacation in April as a makeup day. Another snow day on Thursday, which seems quite possible, would result in the district needing to make up another day during that April break.

Personally, I don’t think that we have any apologies to make for this phenomenon. Having suffered unbearably under successive oppressive regimes, many of those political activists genuinely thought communism would be better ...
