5 Things to Know in Portsmouth This Week (2/18/19)

Will the snow ever stop? Portsmouth has seen two storms and one two-hour delay for its schools in less than a week. Oh, to stroll barefoot through Prescott Park and enjoy the summer musical! Alas, that will come in due time, and just days ago it was announced that "Beauty and the Beast"is this summer’s big event. For now, however, it seems we have to continue braving the cold. At least the following things to do are all indoors, so we can at the very least stay warm and dry.
