CONCORD, N. H. – Light snow is falling over much of New Hampshire, making for some difficult driving conditions and low visibility.
The snow was falling during the Monday morning commute in southern New Hampshire and York County. The National Weather Service said visibility was dropping to near or below a half-mile at times.
Some New Hampshire schools delayed opening.
Up to 2 inches of snow are expected.
The snow was heading east and was expected to reach the Portland area by midmorning.
CEDAR RAPIDS — Two builders want to pump the brakes on what they call nothing more than a “feel good” topsoil rule, which has been more than a year in the making in Cedar Rapids. Randy Dostal, of Thomas Dostal Developers, and Drew Retz, vice president of Jerry’s Homes and a past president of the Homebuilders Association of Iowa, aren’t buying the plan city officials say is going to improve soil quality and stormwater infiltration by requiring an average 4 inches of topsoil remain post-construction.
The little red brick building on Robinson Street, later Second Street, in Coralville went through a number of incarnations before it was restored and named to the National Register of Historic Places. The building was built in the early 1880s as the Coralville Union Ecclesiastical Church. It was the second church in the city, built after the Methodist church on Patterson Street burned down.
