AREA– To paraphrase the great Warren Wolf, If you had Rutherford, plus FIVE, you lost! Indeed, despite being hammered by just under two feet of snow, 23 inches, Rutherford was not nearly as dumped on by Mother Nature as was neighbor Lyndhurst during the day-after-Christmas storm, as the home of the Golden Bears was covered by 29 inches, just under two-and-a-half feet of the fluffy white stuff! That blanketing gave Lyndhurst the third highest local total during the Blizzard of 2010, which is the fifth largest snow storm ever recorded in the NYC/Northern NJ area. The top two town’s totals were 33 inches in Linden and 32.8 in Elizabeth. Please see photos from Rutherford and Lyndhurst below…
