Snow more? That remains to be seen

According to Stacie Hanes, meteorologist for the National Weather Service, snow totals from the storm varied widely.
Way up north in Pittsburg, 14 inches fell; Berlin got about a foot of fresh snow. In Danbury accumulation reached just over 6 inches, while most of Belknap County only saw an inch or two.
So far this year, Concord has gotten 72.5 inches of snow, almost 20 inches above average.
In Exeter, highway director Jay Perkins said his crew is constantly busy and everyone has had enough snow already.
Michael Perreault, public works director for the city of Berlin, said that the snow is putting a stranglehold on his budget.
Though the cost of salt took a dive this year, fuel prices have jumped 40 cents since January, and Berlin has used 1,200 more tons of sand than last year.
That's good news for ski resorts like Waterville Valley, which also got a foot of snow, according to Marketing and Communications Coordinator Peter Sununu.
"It looks like we're in for sunny skies on Saturday so you can be sure we'll be breaking out the grills again for another mountainside beach day," he said. "There's nothing like great snow and blue skies."
"It seems like most of the people that had the day off didn't make it out today," she said. "We are hoping that they will make it out this weekend to enjoy the snow."
