Weather conditions made things very messy around New Jersey on Saturday evening. Despite the conditions, the Garden State Plaza had plenty of visitors.

"It's treacherous terrain out there. The Garden State Plaza looked pretty good in northern Jersey. It got pretty rough up near the New York line," said mall-goer Rob Montesano. 

Montesano and a group of friends were looking for an escape from being trapped inside the house on a Saturday evening. 

"We bought tickets in advance to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and we weren't going to miss it. We're a little worried about our ride home, but we'll take it slow and make it happen," said Montesano. "Bilbo wouldn't give up and neither will we." 

Some people visited the local malls today specifically to shop without the hassles of long lines. Did you brave the weather on Saturday evening? Send us a picture or let us know how the roads are in the comments section below.
