Fed Up With Winter? You’ve Got Company
New Jerseyans are once again facing off with Old Man Winter on Thursday, with snow and sleet causing difficult and hazardous traveling conditions.
A lot of Garden State residents are eagerly looking forward to a change of season.
"I'm very sick of winter," said one Mercer County shopper. "I can't wait for spring, and I can't wait for beautiful flowers to bloom."
Alice from Pennington couldn't agree more.
"I'm ready, I'm sick of the white snow," she said. "I want to see the flowers, I want to see the green grass. I'm ready for spring, definitely."
Betty from Trenton said spring arrives in 15 days, and she can't wait.
"I think everybody's ready for spring, but it's New Jersey, it's fine, there's worse places to live," she said. "Look what they're dealing with up in Boston!"
Another shopper said he's ready for some nice, warm weather.
"Yeah, I've had it with winter -- and I ski, so I'm like, 'Bring it on,' but this is it," he said. "I'm done with it."
Bob from Ewing shook his head in agreement.
"I'm ready for spring, I'm ready for summer," he said. "I like the warm weather, real warm weather. Enough with all the snow and freezing temperatures!"
Another shopper said, "When I lived in Colorado, I loved the snow, but around here there's not much to do with it but shovel it. So I'm ready for it to end."
