The Week Ahead: Neighborhood Watch and Groundhog's Day

Here's what's coming up this week in Eatontown and Tinton Falls

Take for instance the upcoming week: temperatures bounce between the 40s and 50s with sunny skies through Wednesday and then more chance of precipitation, of the un-frozen variety, through the weekend. We're betting that groundhogs will bolt from their lairs (nests, dens, suites) on Thursday and let us bid farewell to scarves and parkas toute de suite.
