After Sandy, Some Less Concerned About Nor'easter
In Union Beach, residents at a local watering hole said they don't expect much from this weekend's storm.
It started raining early Friday morning, the start of a Nor'easter's assault on an already Hurricane Sandy-battered New Jersey Coast. By Friday night, the rain is expected to turn to snow. Heavy wind could cause flooding along tidal areas of the Shore.
Some towns have already advised their residents to seek higher ground.
Despite the warnings, some residents expressed their doubts about the potential of this storm, chalking up the Nor'easter fervor to a post-Sandy destruction hangover.
In Union Beach, one of northern Monmouth County's hardest hit towns, Friday afternoon, area residents and local contractors gathered at Ader's Tavern for a beer or two. Though reports call for several inches of snow in the area later Friday night and a possibility of flooding due to heavy winds and rain, there wasn't much concern for Nemo.
The storm is expected to hit the county the hardest Friday night through the following morning and could leave behind anywhere from six to 10 inches of snow, meteorologists have said.
