Ice has covered the tree limbs and power lines. Check out the link to a video on the Weather Channel at:http://www.weather.com/news/weather-winter/winter-storm-pax-latest-news-20140210 Winter storm names enable simpler and more focused communications around forecasts and preparedness information on The Weather Channel and in other media outlets, and during the big storms like Nemo, the names became a handy way for the public to receive and exchange information.” This year the storm names for 2013-2014 are derived from lists created by students at Bozeman High School in Bozeman, MT, as an assignment in Latin class and are primarily from Greek and Roman mythology. Pax is the name of this winter storm. Pax is the Roman Goddess of peace. She urges us to keep harmony among one another as a sacred commodity throughout the year. We will keep you monitor Pax as it moves closer to our area.Sincerely,Mrs. Glock's ClassParamus, NJ
