New Jersey Snow Brings Out Kid In All

Posted: Updated:
MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. -

While most of Friday's surprise morning snow melted quickly. South Jersey was one of the areas hardest hit by the storm.

In Fox Chase commuters broke out their ice scrapers and brushes to knock the powder of their cars.

And over in Mount Laurel where nearly four inches fell, parents like Heidi Rose couldn't wait to get to Laurel Acres park to enjoy the snow with their kids.

"It  was snowing heavy, pretty heavy when we woke up and it was a

surprise," explained Rose. My  husband looked out and said look what happened overnight and I said we definitely  have to go sledding."

Every kid  deserves to sled once a year and I  didn't  want to blow
the opportunity," said Steve Zorowitz.

As a snowman stood watch at the park as deer frolicked through the snow

and kids took to their sleds  down the hill at Laurel Acres Park.

"It was awesome," said Jacob. 

"It was a little scary at first because I have a cast on so I got a little scared but it ended up being really fun," said 11-year-old Lauren De Vicaris.

Mount  Laurel officials say road crews patrolled the township through the day but no salting or plowing was necessary. Police say there were only two minor weather related fender benders.
