STAFFORD TOWNSHIP - New Jersey was dealt yet another winter storm Monday, this time hitting the Jersey Shore and the southern part of the state the hardest.

In the Beach Haven West section of Stafford Township, residents dug out from 6 inches of snow and frigid cold temperatures.

Spring can't come quick enough for Dan Mooney. "I'm done with the snow. Done with the cold weather," he says. "But I gotta take it in stride."

The snow continued into the afternoon, making for a slow commute on Route 72 heading into Long Beach Island.

Dozens of schools delayed the start of classes so plows and salt trucks could work on the roadways.

Snowplow drivers made several passes on the roads, leaving some side streets slippery. "I'm getting sick of it but we're making money," says driver David Hill. "We're snowplowers so we'll take it."

Gov. Chris Christie declared a state of emergency ahead of the storm Sunday and closed state offices for all non-essential employees.

NJ Transit is cross-honoring tickets systemwide all day Monday.

The snow has given way to low temperatures, which will reach the single digits for most of New Jersey early Tuesday, with wind chills below zero.
