This story is exactly why I only like so much nature. I'll marvel at it as long as I don't have to navigate it, sleep in it or worry about surviving it. A local Freehold family was recently rescued after getting lost on a mountain hike in Maine.
With polar-like conditions set to bring frigid air to the Jersey Shore this week, New Jersey American Water wants homeowners to take the necessary precautions now to prevent frozen and damaged household pipes, that could put your home in the cold during the inclement weather.
We've had a mostly warm winter season for the so far but that's coming to a screeching halt this weekend with wintry weather and bone chilling winds breathing down the neck of the Jersey Shore forcing a Code Blue activation.

Now memories of the Seaside Heights St. Patrick's Day parade in the past are a bit fuzzy (you could understand why), but I don't remember parade day being this cold. Temps usually start cold in the morning but usually wind up being in the 40's/50's as the day goes on.
Local officials are warning people to not attempt to walk on the frozen Banegat Bay.
