Anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of accumulation are expected for the region, accompanied by northerly winds with gusts reaching 55 mph. A winter weather advisory will remain in place until 2 a.m. Sunday [Oct. 30], the weather service reports.

**Update. Power went out in western Bridgewater at 1:30pm on October 29, 2011. As of 2:14pm on October 30, power has not been restored. Further update: As of around 10am on October 31 power has not been restored in LBE's section of Bridgewater. Also, there were are lot of dark houses on Oct. 30 in Princeton on Route 206 north of boro police headquarters. As of 9am on November 1, 2011, power has still not been restored.

From the Philly Inquirer:

The [New Jersey] governor and his family were among those who lost power. The lights went out around 3 p.m. Saturday at Christie's Mendham home and weren't restored until about 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Christie, his wife and four children stayed in their home Saturday, when temperatures reached 47 degrees. But they headed to the governor's mansion in Princeton on Sunday night, only to briefly lose power there.

"I know if you are without power today, Thursday seems like a long time from now," the governor said. "I understand that all this information, if you are someone who doesn't have power, is just talk until the lights go back on and the heat goes back on in your house. I get that. I lived it over the last 36 hours."
