Manchester and Essex battered by multiple storms

The Manchester Essex Regional School district has lost five days of instruction to snow this year. With storms hitting the area almost every week since the new year, both communities are feeling overwhelmed by the weather.

The last round of storms were on Wednesday February 2 and Thursday February 3.  Students were released half an hour early on Wednesday and school was cancelled on Thursday.

During last week’s twin storms, MEMO photojournalists documented the impact on both towns.
