People enjoy the first snowfall at the Jersey shore

- It was a cold, gray, snowy morning on the Ocean City boardwalk.

“I went out to get some air, a lot of air. It is – it’s cold,” said Alicia Kodadek. 

Despite one man jogging in shorts, most runners and walkers were bundled for the wet, frigid forecast.

“I’m gonna be ready for whatever comes my way,” said Ocean City resident Jeanne Schwab.

Prepared for the weather, Schwab is wishing Mother Nature would produce more snow.

“I was hoping there would be enough snow to get my cross country skis out or that there would be a little more surf, because I love surfing in the snow,” Schwab explained.

There wasn’t enough snow to move the plows out of the park. But, enough snow for a mother-daughter snowball fight? Yes, that was possible.

“We were super excited. We’re hoping to get the sleighs out later,” said Debbie, an Upper Township resident.

As snowfall lightly coated cars and rooftops in Cape May County, the temperatures dipped below freezing.

Dan Doolin, was concerned enough about freezing pipes, so he drove down from Medford, New Jersey to spend a few hours winterizing his Rita’s Italian Ice store on the 9th Street boardwalk.  

“I’m going to power up the compressor open line and it will blow each line out individually,” Doolin explained.

Fortunately, Doolin was in town early, while the roads were wet, but clear.
