As a major winter storm blanketed New Jersey with several inches of snow Thursday morning, my commute started kind of messy, then went from bad to worse.

Driving from Medford Township in Burlington County and along Route 295 toward Mercer County, what started out as wet, somewhat slushy roads soon turned into a covering of snow and slush. That eventually led to some pretty bad driving conditions that resulted in accidents and reduced speed limits.

Heading to the New Jersey 101.5 studios, there weren't a lot of cars on the road, and as far as I'm concerned, it should stay that way in weather like this. Bottom line: take it slow, be safe...or better yet, stay home.
