CLARK, NJ – When all was said and done, there were more than two feet of snow covering Clark. DPW plows started to clear streets at 5 a.m. Saturday, and kept at it, fighting a seemingly losing battle as the snow fell at, at times, more than an inch per hour. Scenes from the day show the severity of the storm.

Now, as the sun shines just hours later, it’s a matter of cleaning up.

“The main roads in town are passable, but in a lot of places they’re down to one lane,” Police Chief Pedro Matos said. “The side roads are tough getting through.”

Residents should not shovel snow into the streets. “We do not need more snow in the roadways,” Matos said.

He also cautioned residents to “take it easy” while shoveling and to look out for elderly neighbors who night need help clearing their sidewalks and driveways.

Shoprite, Acme, Whole Foods and Target are open for business.
