HACKENSACK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A fresh coating of snow fell Tuesday morning, and there’s another storm taking shape later this week.
As CBS2’s Vanessa Murdock reports, some are saying “make it stop,” while others say “let it snow.”
No matter which road Murdock traveled along in the Mobile Weather Lab, signs of winter stare right back at her.
Cleanup continues across the Tri-State Area after back-to-back storms. So much snow blankets the region that getting rid of it seems a Herculean task.
Perhaps that’s why Edgewater Public Works busted out the melter to make a dent – steam rises from the top as the modern day marvel forces a phase change – frozen to liquid water – down the storm drain it goes.
In Orange County, fresh powder is sticking to leftovers piled sky high on roads, and driveways.
Murdock asked around for feelings about this seasons impressive pileup so far. Most admit they love the look, but there is always a “but. ”
“I mean it’s pretty, but…” said Jared Bell of Central Valley.
“I love it, but…” said Magali Ramirez of Woodbury.
Snowfall fatigue already setting in.
“There’s like no break,” said Ralph Rodriguez.
“It’s annoying,” Bell said.
“It’s too much this year,” Ramirez said.
Ramirez and her family were out in full force with shovels and brooms, cleaning their long driveway again. Their snowblower broke in the last storm.
“Gotta break my back now,” Guillermo Ramirez said.
The boys broke a big sweat, but did so having a good old time.
Murdock asked 6-year-old Alejandro should it keep snowing?
“Yes,” he said.
“Do you help shovel?” Murdock asked.
“No,” Alejandro said.
“How are you going to make it through this winter if it continues to snow, back to back to back?” Murdock asked.
“I don’t know, to be honest,” Magali Ramirez said.
On the flip side, Nadia Kahonuk said she wouldn’t mind if every day is a snow day.
“I love it actually, and it’s great exercise,” she said.
Her 5-year-old son Lucas loved it, too.
“I love snowman,” he said. “I want to hug him.”
