Ridgewood Public Schools will have a delayed opening today as well as the Village Hall and The Stable and will have a 9:30 a.m delayed opening .

While the Blizzard came in a bit short of the 18-24 inches of snow totals expected, snow rian and sleet and dangerous winds led to white out conditions.

Heights and Phelps was closed while a tree was removed .

Ridgewood Fire department reminds you that If you should lost power during the storm and needed to use a portable generator, please use it with care and according to the instructions for that device.

Heard a great Shoveling tip yesterday, spray PAM on the shovel blade before shoveling.The Snow slides right off and doesn’t stick.
