Snow blankets NK, Exeter

January 12, 2011

North Kingstown and Exeter may have gotten off easy two weeks ago when a quick blizzard passed through the area and left a foot of snow that was picked up without much incident but today, Mother Nature returned with quite a vengeance as well over 15 inches of snow fell across Rhode Island and left areas as far south as Westerly and as far north as Cumberland coated in the white stuff.
So, how did you deal with the storm? Were the roads up to snuff on your commute? Leave a comment and let us know.
