We ended up with 12 inches (all around us have 6 to 8) but I lost a sizable tree branch and a few more that can be handled, these ones hit the roof, and slid down - I don't see any damage.
I have two coworkers coming at 2:30 to move the tree branch to the backyard, no one is packing a chainsaw today, but we'll get it soon. For now just want to clean up the front.
Ones and was watching the weather channel and quote "Most of NJ has between 6-8 inches but this are near Hurricane Sandy called Manchester Township has reported over a foot of snow throughout the township."
I'm so blessed that the big branch didn't take out our window to the front of our home. It is at least 10ft wide and would be har to cover with vinyl siding to protect us from any other weather.
I CANNOT IMAGING this snow along the shore adding to the mess - just seeing roads (which are all gone in Seaside Heights) they are just beach sand carved into roads now. Seeing the ground I'm sure has become very difficult for a few days.
BTW - Saturday and Sunday is forecasted to be in the MID 70s - lolol. Dress appropriately.
I'll add a few photos, including MY CAR stuck in the back yard. I was stupid and didn't use Tracey's outback with many more inches clearance and tried smashing a road using my Subaru Legacy instead. Guess I'll be driving her car to work tonight.
IF we see record snow falls this here Winter, I may have to cut down a beautiful tree from where the branches fell - it seems like the branches are weak and easy to break by had, I'm hoping the tree is much better, it comes alive beautiful and full ever Spring.
