Stores Close as Snow Storm Hits

Downtown Chatham was deserted by 3 p.m. Friday.

As the snow fell and road conditions worsened, Chatham Borough shut down and most traffic was heading towards I-78.

The Library of the Chathams closed at 2:30 p.m., not to reopen, Director Diane O'Brien said, until 1 p.m. Saturday.

The School District of the Chathams authorized early dismissals for students and staff to ensure their safety.

Aida's, Arminio's and Cafe Beethoven were three of the last eateries open Friday. Hardware stores sold salt, shovels, gloves and batteries to residents.
