Winter isn't over.

Last week's taste of spring was just a tease for sure as the storm that ripped through the northeast on Tuesday - dubbed Stella by the Weather Channel - dumped 15.8 inches of snow in the township, according to the National Weather Service.

Schools were closed Tuesday and Wednesday as residents were digging out from under the late season storm that brought swirling winds along with the snow. At times, the snowfall was furious, dropping up to four inches in an hour. Government offices were closed, as were many businesses.

And as rough as it was, Stella wasn't as bad as it could have been. The National Weather Service was calling for upwards of 30 inches for West Milford accompanied by high winds. That wasn't the case but there was still plenty of snow to be moved.

There were very few reports of power outages and residents heeded the warnings from the Office of Emergency Management to stay off the roads during the storm.

Hang in there - Monday is the official start of spring!
