ANOTHER STORM DAMPENS BUSINESS

Not to belabor the obvious, but the snowy winter of 2010-’11 is putting a tight squeeze on Red Bank stores and restaurants, owners say.

“It’s killing us,” says Gary Sable, of That Hot Dog Place on Monmouth Street. Motioning to the municipal parking lot on White Street, he says” “Look, it’s empty.”

Empty of everything but white stuff, that is. And the outlook is for more than previously expected.

Wednesday’s snow came in sooner and heavier than expected, with forecasters boosting their expected accumulation totals. Up to a foot of snow is now expected by early Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

Previously, forecasters expected more rain than snow today, with totals of six to nine inches.

Here’s the forecast:
