We got about 4 inches or so of icy snow/rain/sleet outside of Lebanon.
Hi Gypsy - From what I've read and heard, that is correct. Up here in Littleton, as far as I know, no one has had problems. Lisbon was without power at least for a little while, not sure if they still are now.

NH2008 - Oh wow! You had not only the storm but a 2-year-old with the flu to contend with! Glad you have family to stay with until everything is taken care of....hope your little one feels better and nobody else in the family gets sick!

I am guessing it was worse in your area because Stoddard is quite a bit higher in elevation compared to Keene. I think the freezing rain event was longer lived in the higher terrain.
