BRIDGEWATER - New Jerseyans ventured back outside Friday following an overnight storm that dumped snow on the state.
Those who weren't fully prepared for Thursday night's storm headed out Friday to stock up on salt and shovels once the snow stopped and the sun came out.
Greg Griffin still had to work Friday, picking up recyclables in Bridgewater. He says getting there was half the battle. "The way to work was the worst part of it," he says.
The winter storm blanketed area roads with several inches of snow, and plows had not gotten to all of them.
The bitter cold wasn't about to keep Dora Velasco from getting in an hour's worth of exercise either. She took hand weights out with her on her walk. "I feel good," she says. "I like to work in any weather, so for me, it's good."
Joe Simmons cleared the snow from the front of Next Level Hair Studio in Somerville to encourage customers to drop in. "Hopefully, I can do something," he says. "Bills still gotta be paid."
Untreated roads are likely to freeze as temperatures drop, but warmer weather Sunday should clear what remains.
