With many snow covered roads, blowing snow, and bitterly cold temperatures, driving at the Jersey Shore is a treacherous task this morning.
Adding in the sub-zero wind chill values, if your car is outside, just walking is challenging.
The takeaway from JSHN contributor reports is this: stay home if you can.
Here are some of their reports from between 8:10 a.m. and 9:10 a.m.:
Joyce LaBrutto: Whiteout still here in Jackson. Roads are not plowed. Slippery!
Carol Stoffers: Nothing salted or plowed in Freehold, and they are very slippery.
Deborah Welby: Hooper Ave (Brick/Toms River) a nightmare! Driving to work was insane.
Tristin Fleck: Up to (Garden State Parkway Exit) 114 is bad. 116 plowed.
Donald Stevens: Terrible in Point Beach. Just cancelled church services.
Connie White: Route 70 in Lakewood looks bad. I’m not out but can see from my place. The people that are out are driving slow for Route 70.
Jon Arch: Roads not plowed in Little Egg.
Jim Matuszewski: I left work at 7 from Somerset and 287 South was good, but the Parkway was a sheet of ice from the Holmdel Barracks down. I got off at Exit 91.
George Cox: Plows won’t help. I-195 keeps getting re-covered by the wind.
Brandon McTigue: County roads in Manchester are terrible as usual.
Tim Kellett: Route 33 in Neptune was “fair.”
Bill Will: Plows just come through the main roads in my neighborhood in West Toms River. Still have light snow coming down, and of course, the wind.
Stephen Smith: Route 35 south from Red Bank to Neptune was slippy with white-out conditions at intersections.
Kathy Dalton: Drove from Marlboro to Holmdel to work this morning around 7:30. Routes 79 and 520 and Middletown Road were slippery and not cleared in most places.
