LEBANON, Nh.- Whether you love it, or you loathe it, Mother Nature hit our region hard.

“It’s wonderful, I hope we get at least twice as much,” said David Fracht.

“It sucks, and I hate it,” said Lynne Murray.

The snow started falling early Wednesday morning in Lebanon, New Hampshire and never really let up.

“Well we are in February, you can expect it,” said George Murray.

The roads were sloppy and slippery in spots. And those who ventured out early say the morning commute took longer than normal.

“Traffic was probably moving about 10 miles an hour slower then it usually does, I was late to work, but no big deal,” said Fracht.

“But as long as you go slow, and clean the snow of your car, so you can see out your windows you’re pretty good,” said Lynne Murray.

For the most part the going was slow.  ut at the Lebanon Municipal Airport everything was at a standstill. All six Cape Air flights for the day were canceled.

“Usually it’s one or two flights. It doesn’t happen very often that we are closed all day, but it did today,” said Rick Dyment, the Airport Manager.

Dyment says even though the terminal is empty, crews are still out clearing the runways to get a head start.

“It’s supposed to stop tonight so what we’ll do is work as late as we have to, to get everything buttoned up for tomorrow,” said Dyment.

For the most part people aren’t worried because, well, we live in New England after all.

“There’s no reason why anybody shouldn’t be able to go anywhere in snow like this,” said Frecht.

“Mexico is calling!,” joked Lynne Murray.

Even though more snow is expected to fall throughout the evening Dyment expects all flights should be on schedule Thursday. But be sure to check with Cape Air for the most up to date information.
