- It was a father and son snow shoveling team hard at work on Rancocas Avenue in Hainesport Thursday afternoon. Marshall Lawrence and his son Nathan scooped up snow as fast as it fell.

"It's not bad, not bad, pretty light. Pretty easy shoveling. Not heavy. Good stuff," Marshall Lawrence told FOX 29 .

"Pretty easy. Working on it," Nathan Marshall added.

Downtown Mount Holly looked like a ghost town except for a single shoveler at the Robin's Nest on Washington Street. Snow crews were also hard at work along Main Street in Moorestown. That's where we found Thomas Mount and his co-worker with shovels in hand.

"It's bad. Push it and it's covered right back up. It's bad. Stay home, stay off the roads that's what I would do," Mount told FOX 29.

"It's cold and it's very windy. The roads are slippery. But I like driving in the snow so," John Wisniewski, of Westhampton, said.

Wisniewski and his family  piled into their pick-up for a quick trip to the supermarket in Lumberton. The kids were off from school and celebrating John Jr.'s 7th birthday.

We also found Carol Orendac pushing a cart full of groceries across the snowy parking lot at a ShopRite. She has lots of mouths to feed at home.

"Got five kids. Home off school today so looking forward to  eating. Off tomorrow too it sound's like. They're hoping," Orendac told FOX 29.

 As for all the forecasts this time around, she gave a thumbs up to the FOX 29 Weather Authority.

"Pretty Accurate. I think they did pretty good this time," she said.
