Princeton area event cancelations for Tues. Jan. 16

Police in several area towns report that there are icy patches underneath the snow that make driving conditions poor. Work from home if you can. If you must drive, go slowly and leave lots of distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.

Many public schools in the Princeton area decided on Monday night that schools would open 90 minutes late Tuesday because road conditions were predicted to be bad for the morning commute. But as the snow continued early Tuesday morning, officials canceled school. There is no school today in many Central New Jersey communities, including Princeton, West Windsor, Lawrence, Hopewell Valley, Montgomery, and South Brunswick. In Princeton, the snow day will be made up on Feb. 16, which will be a half day.

Trinity Princeton parish offices are closed. There will be no noon eucharist or centering prayer on Tuesday.

The Princeton Record Exchange is closed.

Senior centers in Somerset County are closed.

Municipal offices in Princeton and South Brunswick open at 10:30 a.m.

Municipal offices in Montgomery open at 10 a.m.

Municipal offices in West Windsor open at 11 a.m.

A reminder that many towns have ordinances requiring home and business owners to shovel the snow on their sidewalks within 24 hours of snow events.

Most municipalities also require drivers to remove vehicles from snow-covered streets so the streets can be plowed.
