We already received some snow back in December, but it was nothing more than a small covering. If anyone recalls, Red Bank was blanketed last year on February 9, 2017, when the town was blanketed by heavy snow – followed by gusty winds and plummeting temperatures.
Be sure to take precautions now before the storm comes tomorrow! Check out the photos below from last year’s big snow storm.
