Local marinas suffer worst damage from winter storm

Posted February 24, 2015 at 7:26 pm

Last week’s winter storm that dumped between eight inches and a foot of snow across the county, coupled with the frigid temperatures that followed and later the freezing rain, has played havoc with schedules including everything from schools to churches to deliveries to businesses and, of course, the task of clearing city streets, county and state roads.

Meetings and events were postponed and/or canceled, and vehicles were involved in accidents from one end of the county to the other.

School classes in Clinton County were canceled all of last week as well as Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, with a decision as to whether or not classes would resume on Thursday and/or Friday to come on Wednesday afternoon.
