TRENTON – Gov. Chris Christie had practical, common-sense advice Friday on the upcoming blizzard: "stay home, avoid unnecessary travel."
"Generally, be smart and be careful," he said during a press conference.
He said thousands of state and private-sector trucks will be salting the roads and will be ready to remove snow.
On the N.J. Turnpike, the speed limit has been reduced to 45 mph from Newark going north, he said.
Plows have been placed on NJ Transit trains.
Snow accumulations could range from 1 to 2 inches in the south to as much as 15 inches in the northernmost regions of the state, according to forecasters.

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
