“It was pretty bad…I blew out a tire on the Parkway this morning so its not fun…I work on the barrier islands so now there is no work” said one man leaving a shopping plaza in Toms River.

“I did a lot of shoveling for early November…this was pretty unreal in New Jersey” said another man.

Angel from Toms River was one of the unfortunate people who lost power during both storms.

“I lost power for five days with Sandy…then got it back…now its out again and they are telling me it won’t be back on until Saturday or Sunday, I’m really growing tired of it.”

“I really think the winter is going to be bad” said another woman leaving a grocery store in Brick. “New Jersey needs a break, she added.
