Ledger Live reporter Brian Donohue shot this pre-storm vodcast about weather-induced panic shopping last Friday at Red Bank and Middletown supermarkets. Will we see a repeat run on bread and milk this week?
Just days after Saturday’s blizzard, the Red Bank area could be facing another wintry mess beginning Tuesday night.
The National Weather Service is warning of an “explosively developing” northeaster (or as they call it, a ‘nor-easter,’ as though we all lived in a Pepperidge Farm commercial) that could bring “heavy snow” to the area through Wednesday.
Locally, it sounds as though we could be in for less pretty white fluffy stuff and more yucky mess.
