Trenton Mayor Eric Jackson issued a statement about the snow storm this afternoon urging residents to stay home and off the roads Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday. He also reminded residents to remove cars from snow-removal routes. Information on th routes is available at trentonnj.org.
Other reminders he mentioned:

* Bring your pets indoors and be careful not to overexert yourself when shoveling snow.
* Check on your elderly friends and neighbors.
* Do not use the oven or kerosene heat as sources of heat.
