Suddenly a snowy landscape goes perfectly with the show at the MAC through Jan. 27.
A special exhibit at the Middletown Arts Center coincides perfectly with a day when newly fallen snow transforms the view out of our windows into a stark visual landscape, where pearled lawns are painted with the bluish strokes of leafless trees. An exhibit currently on view through Jan. 27 called "Let It Snow 2013" includes 40 pieces of art created by local community artists. Some of the local scenes are recognizable, and some of the artwork is available for purchase. "We welcome the public into our warm gallery to view the beauty of winter," said MAC Curator Maggie O'Brien. This is the second year the MAC has invited the talented artists in the area to submit their favorite work for the show. "It was so successful last year, we wanted …

The National Weather Service is calling for snow in our area.

Blanket of snow over the town
Holmdel is under a blanket of snow, in parts 14 inches thick, due to the thick, heavy snowfall overnight that fell upon existing snow. Schools were closed. In the Old Manor section of the township, several residents were out with shovels to free the cars in the driveways. A neighbor was helping other with a whirring snow plow. A few children were found sliding on the packed snow. Although traffic was moving on Bethany Road, most people have clearly chosen to stay parked. NJ Transit bus service is back in service, but riders should expect delays, the agency said, advising them to check njtransit.com for service updates.

Freezing rain and slick conditions closes schools
Freezing rain is expected to continue through the morning commute, which is being made more difficult with icy conditions. Holmdel Township schools were closed Tuesday. But Town Hall offices opened on time. Interim business administrator Ray Wilson said no snow-related problems were reported. In the early hours of the morning, the township's Dept. of Public Works crews put down rock salt with spreaders to prevent freezing on road surfaces, said Jeffrey P. Smith, Jr. , the department's superintendent. "The heavy rain predicted throughout the day will challenge the DPW staff to provide proper drainage of the rain water into storm water basins along the main and secondary roadways," he said in an email report.

9.3 inches recorded in Red Bank, NJ by National Weather Service
The overnight snow storm dumped between 10 to 12 inches on Holmdel but moved north without causing any major emergencies, said Mike Simpson of the township Office of Emergency Management. On the roads at noon, Police Sgt. Eric Hoffman was praising the township road crews. "I just did a spin around the town and the roads are pretty good," he said. "The crews are working to clear some of the intereior streets now." It was a quiet night for selfless fire and first aid volunteers, who slept on cots in their buildings to be on standby, said Simpson. "My surprise of the event: when Chief Boyle from Fire Company #2 on Centerville Road asked me last night for eight more cots for his crew, because the seven I had given him were not enough," …
