article imageAfter a mild winter, New Hampshire's Seacoast hit by winter storm Special

By Tucker Cummings     Mar 1, 2012 in Lifestyle
Dover - New Hampshire's Seacoast area was hit hard today by a winter storm, the first storm of 2012 to result in notable accumulation.
The community of Dover, a small city recently ranked #90 on CNNMoney's 100 Best Places to Live 2011, got a dusting of snow yesterday afternoon. Overnight, parts of the city got 4-6 inches of snow, with another 2-4 inches continuing to fall as the day goes on.
After an unseasonably mild winter, snow crews seemed a bit slow to respond to the sudden dump of snow. While major highways were reasonably clear, some state routes (including 16 and 4) were rather snowy, even by the early afternoon.
Even the main roads between Dover and Portsmouth were heavy with snow.

Despite the hassles associated with the storm, residents took the time to find the beauty in all the snow. After all, it was the first big storm the area had seen all year.
