If you read the blog or my twitter feed you know by now that I am a big Cory Booker guy. He has done a great job as Mayor of Newark, NJ by actually stepping out in the community and making a difference.
A blizzard isn’t the only time you’ll see Cory Booker keeping the public informed via twitter. He routinely makes patrol trips at night with the Newark Police Department. Some may call this a publicity stunt ahead of possible runs for Governor or Senator but there is no camera following him around. I’ve been watching blizzard coverage on the news the last two days and have not heard one mention of Cory Booker.
Don’t get me wrong, I have no problems with Chris Christie going on vacation, I do have a problem with Lieutenant Governor being out of the state at the same time. This is the time first New Jersey has had a Lieutenant Governor but something like this makes me wonder why we created the new office if situations like this are still coming up?
I don’t know who coined these words on twitter during the the storms last winter but they work for me. Twitterverse is referring to the storm as snOMG, snowpocalyse, snowmageddon. Whatever you want to refer to the Blizzard of December 2010 as, there is a lot of snow in the forecast.
Here are some periodic updates from Central New Jersey.

This is how the same spot looked before all the snow.
