    Gov. Chris Christie took off Friday morning for a weekend family vacation in a warm-weather destination while New Jersey dug out from a snowstorm.

    Christie spokesman Colin Reed said the governor and his family flew from New Jersey after the storm had passed.

    Christie closed state offices Thursday, and delayed the reopening until 10:30 a.m. Friday.

    The Christies are expected to return Monday.

    More snow is expected before then.

    Christie got high marks for his response to Sandy but was criticized for leaving the state on a family trip to Disney World before a storm hit in 2010.

    On Tuesday, the governor is planning to hold his first town hall since a political payback scandal broke in January involving the blocking of traffic lanes approaching the George Washington Bridge.
