Bitter cold and blowing snow shuttered schools and government Wednesday, as extreme weather continued overnight.

The last official measurement from the National Weather Service after midnight put Brick under ten inches of snow, with snow drifts reaching above a foot.

State offices and local school districts announced they were closed for the day. Police are urging residents to stay home and stay safe. Keep vehicles and property off streets so plows are not impeded, and if possible clear a path to fire hydrants with shoveling.

Here is an updated closure list for the area, for Wednesday.

Brick Garbage and Recycling collections for Wednesday are cancelled. Please keep in mind that collections were already delayed one day; they will resume on Thursday for homes that have regular Tuesday collection. 

In Point Pleasant Beach, residents are asked to please refrain from shoveling their sidewalks and driveways until after borough plows have plowed from curbline to curbline. 

Point Beach also posted that residents should secure any loose property so it does not blow into the street, and please assist and dig out any fire hydrant in the area of their homes.

Point Beach residents and visitors are asked to stay off roadway due to possible white out conditions from Snow and Wind. This will also assist with snow blow operations.

Point Pleasant Borough had identical advice, but on its snow plowing page, also said to throw snow to the left. "Facing your home at the road edge, throw snow to the left....when / if plows return to widen, there will be less snow to be plowed back into your driveway."
