NJ Residents: Enough Snow Already [POLL/AUDIO]
With New Jersey already on the receiving end of two snowstorms in one week, and the possibility of another on the way, many residents are saying “enough is enough” when it comes to the white stuff.
After Monday’s storm dropped upwards of eight inches in parts of the state, Wednesday’s snowfall dumped a similar amount in the northern parts of New Jersey and coated the remainder of the state in ice and rain.
With so much snow already, understandably, many residents are feeling fed up.
“I think it’s a mess, all this snow needs to stop. I’m tired of it now,” said a New Brunswick woman on her way to work.
In addition to the frigid cold and seemingly endless shoveling, the snow has caused traffic to slow down and prevented many people from being able to go to work or school completely.
“I’ve had to call out of work a few times,” the woman said.
While the prospect of snow might not be unusual for New Jersey, many people are shocked by how snowy this winter has been already.
“That surprised me, and the fact that there’s more on the way frightens me because there are lot of people who are already swamped,” said one man in New Brunswick.
Teachers and parents are having a hard time with the weather. Class has already been canceled twice this week in many locations, and districts have already used up many of their snow days leading up to Monday’s storm.
“I drove two hours here Monday morning, got into class to find out that class had been cancelled for the day,” a Rutgers professor said.
However, some actually enjoy the winter, constant snow and all.
“I live in an apartment so I don’t shovel and I don’t drive,” said one woman, who pointed out how “pretty” the trees and buildings looked with all the snow.
