A blizzard warning is in effect through 4 p.m. Saturday for portions of the state. Gov. Maggie Hassan declared a state of emergency but stopped short of ordering everyone off the roads.

Hundreds of schools were closed Friday, airlines canceled flights and sporting and civic events were postponed.

State-run liquor stores were slated to close at 6 p.m. Friday to encourage people to get off the roads by 7 p.m., when the storm is supposed to intensify.

Backcountry hikers were of high-mountain whiteout conditions and 80 to 90 mph gusts.

Marc Faber: I’m Buying Gold Because I’m Fearful of a Systemic Crisis

by Constantine Gardner


Dr. Marc Faber the Swiss fund manager and Gloom Boom & Doom publisher believes markets will punish central banks, at some stage, for their extensive monetary easing. This could materialize as a bonds market collapse or a stock market bubble.

He reckons investors should enjoy the rally while it lasts, and says he is already unwinding his long positions because when ‘euphoria’ builds up and everybody is investing, markets turn down. He also thinks investors who don’t own gold are in “great danger”.
