It may be St. Patrick’s Day but after the latest snowfall, white, not green, was the color of the day as residents like Myron Prutzman grabbed a shovel and went through a familiar routine.
"It’s been a rough winter, a lot of cold weather, it’s been the roughest winter I can imagine," said Prutzman.
And with spring set to officially begin on Thursday, residents hope the March "lion" is soon replaced with the March "lamb."
"Its been rough, its been rough, it's the middle of march and its still snowing," said Prutzman.
"This winter has been horrendous, I think this is it now, hopefully this is it for the year," said Ed Seddon of Egg Harbor Township. "For me I love it, see I love the cold, I just don't like the snow, cause you've got to shovel it and I'm getting too old to shovel."
Some may say that this winter has been for the birds, but at Birch Grove Park in Northfield, the geese didn't seem to mind it.
In Pleasantville, what was once a welcomed sight has now become a nuisance for students like Elijah Glover, who realizes another snow day means one less day of summer.
"Horrible. And I have seven snow days to make up," said Glover. "Got to have school in July basically now."
While the fun of snow may have run out for Elijah, for some, it never started.
"It’s no fun now, when I was a kid, it was fun, its no fun now, its too much work, I'm too old for this," said Stanley Silver of Pleasantville.
According to the National Weather service, some of the highest snow totals were seen in Cape May County, with Wildwood Crest leading the pack.
The coastal community had already seen ten and a half inches early this morning and as the snow continued to fall, some, like Jim Maschio, were forced to try to make the most of it.
"It hasn't been too bad, we like to take advantage of it and have fun with it," said Maschio.
With a snowman decked out to celebrate this "Snow" Patrick's Day and an igloo on the way, fun seemed to be the best way to handle this wild winter.
"I think I’m done with it,” said Maschio.
“On and off snow, it’s hot one day, it’s cold the next, it just doesn't make too much sense."
