Another round of intense winter snow hits NJ
TRENTON, N.J. (WABC) -- New Jersey found itself digging out from another major snowstorm Thursday and dealing with canceled flights, closed schools - some for the second day in a row - and slippery roads.
There were 19 inches in Clifton, 18.9 at Newark Liberty International Airport and a foot in Sicklerville. Only southern stretches of the shore were spared deep accumulations, with North Cape May getting 3.4 inches and North Cape May 1 inch.
It's around the clock clean up in Secaucus with little room to put the snow.
So, crews used front loaders to lift it, load it and haul it away.
Up the block, Ron Smith spent six hours digging.
He shoveled his sidewalk, his stairs, his car, his wife's car and his mother-in-law's car.
So he's tired to say the least.
"How do you feel about winter?" Eyewitness News asked.
"Wish it was over. Wish it was summer, at least I'll have a better body then," Smith said.
Down the street, Linda Gallagher was at too.
She shoveled her sidewalk, driveway, stairs, and cars.
When she finished that, she did the same for her out of town neighbors.
"I've been working since 10:30 this morning. Trying to make a nice path for people walking so they don't fall," Gallagher said.
