MORRISTOWN - With the pre-Halloween nor'easter leaving 5 or more inches of snow across much of the state, many tree branches were broken, causing hundreds of thousands to be without power.

The storm and power outages were so bad that Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) declared a state of emergency.

The snow made travel difficult for many residents. Many local businesses in Morristown that would usually stay open until 11 p.m. closed early because no one wanted to venture outside.
