South Jersey residents had just dug out of their homes from a winter storm that hit the area Feb. 5 when they had to brace for a second snowfall, expected to start on Tuesday, Feb. 9. Above right, the statue of Mary at Our Lady of Grace Church, Somerdale, remains covered on Monday, Feb. 8 from the first snow. At left, melting snow from the roof of St. John Church, Collingswood, results in long icicles and an ice-covered bush. This issue of the Catholic Star Herald went to the printer a day early, in anticipation of the predicted bad weather.
