The southern tier of the state is getting its first dusting of snow of the winter season this morning. As it does, the first question on the minds of many is probably “how is the driving?”

We have never been better at keeping roads clear during snow-storms, but now for environmental and budgetary reasons the question is how to use less salt.

Not Quite A Sign Of The Times

It was about two weeks ago that Stephen Dignazio, the executive director of the non-profit Colonial Theatre in Bethlehem, put the message on the marquee.

It said “Spring Is On The Way.”

It was a warm, fuzzy thought, but premature.

“I guess we made a misstep there,” said Dignazio.

With the snow getting heavier throughout the day Wednesday, cars churned up and down Main Street past the theater and that overly optimistic marquee

And Dignazio was not trying to escape the blame for the wintry assault.

New Hampshire was dealt a late-season winter storm on Tuesday.

With snow whipping across his face, Christian Driscoll did his best to stay warm as he filled up the tank of his wife’s car at a Londonderry gas station.

“I’m just grabbing some gas for the wife so she doesn’t have to do it then she’s on her way to Salem.”

While the calendar may say spring is only a day away, you wouldn’t know it by the weather. Driscoll says there’s not much you can do other than accept it.

Snow was still falling late Sunday afternoon, but most of Manchester's main roads were clear. The Queen City wasn't hit as hard as some forecasts predicted, allowing city workers to keep pace with the snow.

Downtown, most restaurants and businesses were open. Bobcats and sidewalk plows darted up and down Elm street, clearing paths for the few people who were out walking.

At the Derryfield Country Club, a couple dozen people made the best of the weather, building snowmen and sledding on one of the golf course's hills.

There’s some snow on tap for the Granite State. The Northeast seems to be in a pattern of unsettled weather, with two storms swinging through in just a matter of days. The first flakes should begin to fly tonight, as a weak system passed through clipping the bottom of the state.

Hometown Forecast Service’s Rob Carolan says this quick hit should amount to about an inch for the southern part of the state, and just a dusting up North.

Carolan: It should be all said and done by about noon tomorrow.
