Good afternoon readers, it’s great to be back!
Traveling over the past weekend turned out to be an adventure to say the least (six canceled flights in all). Luckily, I have no plans to leave New England during the next few days because just like where we left off last week, it’s looking more and more likely we’ll be getting even more snow. There is a winter storm warning from 7 a.m. tomorrow through 1 p.m. Thursday.
As seen in the video above, ski areas may be excited for more snow, but that isn’t the case for everybody. WMUR also has a list of town-by-town parking bans as they become available.
