EDISON - The cleanup from the blizzard continues across New Jersey, especially in Monmouth County which state transportation chief James Simpson describes as "ground zero" for the storm.

Thousands of viewers have contacted News 12 New Jersey to report bad or unplowed road conditions preventing them from leaving their homes three days after the storm.

The after-Christmas storm covered some areas with more than two feet of snow and stranded motorists and airline passengers for days.

Many New Jersey residents say they are dismayed that Gov. Chris Christie and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno are both on vacation this week. That left Senate President Stephen Sweeney, the third-in-command, to deal with the massive storm.

Acting Governor Sweeney has asked the Christie administration to apply for federal aid to help with the cleanup costs.
