Parsippany Police Department said “Is mother nature having a good time playing with the weather? We went from barely any snow predicted two days ago, to possibly up to 10 inches by Wednesday! With that said please get your shovels out and your snow blowers primed. Hopefully this is our very last storm to deal with.  Please don’t forget to remove your cars from the public roadway before the storm. We really do not like ticketing and towing illegally parked vehicles. We unfortunately had to multiple times last storm.”
