The River Freezes in January in Highlands


IMG_0820Anybody remember January 29 2003? The river froze over and the ferries were canceled. What happened 11 years later? The river is freezing over and ferries to NY are canceled.

Anybody remember Jan 30, 1924? According to the Red Bank Register, “The river from Sandy Hook to Sea Bright is a solid sheet of ice and work along the river is a standstill. The current in the river at this time at this place is strong and the weather has to be very cold in order to freeze the water.’

The more things change the more they stay the same.
