In Rochester, a plow clipped a toll booth on the Spaulding Turnpike around 2 a.m. closing two northbound lanes for a period of time. One lane has since reopened.

In Massachusetts, two tractor-trailers jack-knifed on I-495 Northbound, causing lane closures just south of Route 3 in Chelmsford. Massachusetts State Police are asking people to avoid the area.

NH DOT crews have been out since 2 a.m. and have been preparing roads for the storm since yesterday. Speed is reduced on all major highways to 45 mph.

Despite the snow, there are no delays as of 6:30 a.m. at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. However, airport officials are telling people to check their flight before heading out.

And ski resorts are happy to see the storm. Mount Sunapee, which was forced to close about two weeks ago, is planning to reopen today.
