Northern New Hampshire got anywhere from six to twelve inches of snow. Parts of Southern New Hampshire got a lot of rain and sleet.”</p></blockquote><blockquote><p>"It was pretty average. There weren't any ridiculously high totals."</p></blockquote><p>Ekster said this morning should bring another one to three inches of snow with locally higher amounts in the mountains.</p><p></p><p></p> Thu, 13 Mar 2014 10:40:19 +0000 Chris Jensen 44999 at http://nhpr.org N.H.
