But Malafronte doesn’t expect the snow to be much of a problem at his airport.
“It’s a cold, dry snow,” he said. “It should get cleaned up quickly. It’s just really how quickly those airports down line can get back running.”
Bill Boynton, spokesman for the New Hampshire Department of Transportation, said the timing of the storm was not ideal for them.
“Our workers have just worked a regular full day,” Boynton said. “We’ve had to work a lot of weekends, a lot of nights. That’s a big hit to our overtime budget.”
Boynton said there wasn’t much that his crews could do ahead of the storm.
“There’s a water mix that we use, but we can’t if it’s real cold,” he said. “With salt, it has to interact with the snow. You can’t put it down ahead of time. It would get run off the road.”
Breton said temperatures were expected to remain cold through the storm and throughout the week.
“It will probably be in the teens through Friday,” he said. “By Saturday, it will get back up to 30 degrees.”
