Seacoast digs out after getting slammed with storm


HAMPTON- The Blizzard of 2015 rocked the Seacoast with heavy winds, rough seas and more than 30 inches of snow.

The waves crashed up onto the seawall all night, but amazingly, the walls were not damaged and the area avoided any flooding.

What couldn't be avoided was the snow, most Seacoast towns got at least two feet of powder.

"It was light snow. So because it was very light and fluffy, it was much easier to deal with, rather than if we had two feet of mashed potatoes," One Seacoast resident said.

It may have been light snow Tuesday, but once it got plowed into giant piles Wednesday and saw colder temperatures, it became much heavier to move.

Many Seacoast residents spent the day digging out their homes and businesses.

Considering Hampton got 30 inches of snow and saw such heavy winds, the damage could have been worse.
