MIDDLESEX COUNTY - Ice, slush and snow continue to cause problems across the state after a wintry mix fell Wednesday.

Matthew Daddino used red spray paint to express what many in the Garden State feel about this winter season.

He wrote "ENOUGH" in the icy mess in front of his house, after working extra hard yet again to shovel his driveway.

"I just had enough of the snow since I've missed so many school days and I have to make up the days," Daddino says.

In Roselle Park, ice brought tree limbs down on power lines, leaving many customers without power.

Normally passersby would be able to walk through the bamboo forest at Rutgers Gardens, but they were slowed to a crawl due to the icy conditions.

Amanda Cielesz lives on Easy Street in Edison, but walking or driving along the roadway is hard as can be. She says regular plowing is rare, and wonders if emergency vehicles could get through the ice. "They're not going to be able to maneuver to get around," she says.

Much of the ice and snow melted Wednesday afternoon, but colder temperatures are threatening a re-freeze.
