New Jersey transportation officials as well as State Police will be conducting their annual emergency evacuation exercise today to practice and refine a response in the event of a major storm like a hurricane.
In the summer of 2012, I learned a weather term I'd never heard of before. On June 29th that year a howling storm called a 'derecho' swept through South Jersey. It was the kind of storm that had me in bed with a pillow over my head waiting for it to pass.
Saturday night's thunder, lightening, rain, wind, and hail really pounded South Jersey. Trampoline's were sent flying out of backyards, trash cans were overturned, trees snapped. But one local bunny rabbit seemed perfectly protected from the damage despite being left in an outdoor cage.
