CENTRAL JERSEY: Winter won't back off
Schools, offices close due to big snowstorm
Princeton and the region were blanketed by a winter storm on Thursday that made roads slick, closed schools and caused some power outages.
Anywhere from 6 to 8 inches of snow were possible in the southern half of Mercer County, Burlington, Cape May and Ocean counties, said Sarah Johnson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, Mount Holly office. Mercer was under a snowstorm warning until 7 p.m.
Accumulation totals by early afternoon showed 5.5 inches in Hopewell, 5.4 in Ewing and 5 in Princeton, Ms. Johnson said.

The drama pitting the Institute for Advanced Study against the Friends of Princeton Battlefield reached a critical point two weeks ago when the D & R Canal Commission, which a few days before rendered a decision failing to approve the institute’s housing development in the Battlefield area, reversed course and approved the application based on a change of vote by one member, a state employee.
Longtime friends Janis Ian and Tom Paxton will bring folk to Monroe
CHANCES are, even if you’re not a fan of folk music, you’ve heard a Janis Ian tune at least once in your life. She’s been nominated for nine Grammys in eight different categories over her storied career, and has taken home two wins. Her songs “At Seventeen” and “Society’s Child” are classics.
The 63-year-old first performed in front of a live audience when she was 13 years old, taking to the stage at New York’s infamous Village Gate alongside other singer-songwriters such as Phil Ochs and Tom Paxton.
Speaking of Tom Paxton, the legendary singer was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award a few years ago. With a whopping 62 albums to his credit — including the just-released Redemption Road, the 73-year-old has done just about everything and gone just about anywhere a musician can.
