BERNARDSVILLE - Cleanup efforts continue around New Jersey in the wake of a fall nor?easter that dumped more than a foot of snow in parts of the state last weekend.

New Jersey's two major utilities are working toward the goal of restoring electricity lost in the snowstorm to most of their customers by Friday. Thousands of homes and businesses are still without power.

Utility workers are facing downed trees and closed roadways in many of the hardest hit areas where repairs are needed.

More than a dozen school districts in northern parts of the state remain closed today. Some districts are worried that they'll use all their anticipated snow days before the winter even starts.
