A good amount of snow fell in Absecon, New Jersey leaving a winter wonderland as reported by Christie Ileto during Action News at 11 on December 5, 2018.

ABSECON, N.J. (WPVI) -- The sound of tires spinning was common on the unplowed side streets of Brigantine, New Jersey Wednesday night.

"I was breaking and I literally had to go over to the side. I almost hit someone. It was bad, real bad," said motorist Nicole Maher.

Atlantic County bore the brunt of Wednesday's snowstorm in South Jersey.

Areas like Absecon were hit hard in the afternoon, but Brigantine was slammed with more than seven inches in just a couple of hours.

"This doesn't look like seven inches but Lord knows we're at the shore," said Dianna Cross of Williamstown.

A good amount of snow fell in Absecon, New Jersey leaving a winter wonderland.

For the first time this year, Tracey Wilson has the old shovel out.

She cleared snow from her driveway in Absecon.

"Yeah, it's good. It's not too cold. The snow is nice and light. It's easy to move," she said.

The snow was consistently falling for the most part of the day.

In Egg Harbor, we saw several plow truck go through town on White Horse Pike.

And neighbors there also embraced the quick winter storm.

"I am a winter person, so it's fine for me," said Deborah Hayes of Egg Harbor.

One man was particularly excited.

"Perfect day to deer hunt, and that's where I'm off to right now," said John Garth of Egg Harbor.

Down in Pleasantville, even the snow blowers were out.

They got several inches thick enough to coat the sidewalks.

For Shah Sanders of Pleasantville, he had this whole block along Main Street to clear with only his shovel.

"It's kind of messy out here right now. I wish I was inside but unfortunately, I'm the super of this building so therefore I got to take care of this so guys like you won't slip and fall, " he said.

Several schools in the area let out early, and we know the students didn't complain about that.
