EDISON - The snowfall has ended around New Jersey after a wet and cold Thursday.

However, Gov. Chris Christie’s state of emergency remains in effect for the state as thousands of plows and salt trucks continue to make New Jersey roads save for motorists.

Hundreds of schools and businesses were closed Thursdasy because of the weather. Gov. Christie ordered all state offices to be closed as well. Dozens of schools will be having delayed openings for Friday and some will even be closed.

The snow totals for the majority of areas around the state were anywhere from 4 to 9 inches. Brick Township had one of the highest totals at 9 inches of snow.

Many took advantage of the day to go out and enjoy the snow. However, many who spoke to News 12 New Jersey say this winter has been draining and that they are ready for spring and the warmer weather.
