BRICK TOWNSHIP - Residents in Brick Township, which was among the areas hit the hardest by the snowstorm, spent Friday morning digging out from the white stuff.

People awakened to head to work, in some cases, only to find their cars encased in ice and snow and their windshield wipers frozen after 9 inches of snow fell in the township.

A husband and wife, the Katzes, teamed up to clear their driveway and property early Friday. They hoped that snowplows wouldn't push the snow back onto their property.

Although sun was in the forecast Friday, the temperature was so low that much of the snow wasn't expected to melt.
