One, Two Punch: Governor Sununu Says We Are Almost Out
CONCORD — First the snow … now the cold. NH1 Meteorologist Joe Joyce says with the wind gusts, Friday’s temperatures can feel like -15 to -30 degrees below zero. Saturday won't be much better.
Gov. Chris Sununu called into "The Morning Wake Up" with Nazzy and Tara on 98.3 WLNH Friday morning with some advice for Granite Staters for this batch of cold air.
The governor says one way homeowners can help is by clearing out the path to your fill and vent pipes. With home-fuel companies working almost around-the-clock trying to keep up with the high volume of calls, they are wasting precious time shoveling snow.
“If you can proactively do that,” the governor urged, “it literally means more people are going to get oil.”
For those on the Seacoast, Sununu says we will likely see flooding in some areas again Friday. He reminds residents, don’t drive through the water. Call your police department if you find your home is surrounded by water.
The governor also praised the plow drivers who spend much of Thursday removing snow and ice from New Hampshire’s roadways. At its peak, more than 700 plows were out on the road and many are back out today cleaning secondary roads.
Sununu says the silver lining is for the hundreds of thousands of skiers and snowboarders in the state. The conditions will be close to perfect after this quick cold snap.
