Another snowstorm swept across New England on Wednesday, toppling seasonal snowfall records and dumping so much heavy snow on buildings that some collapsed. An unoccupied pizza shop collapsed at Weirs Beach in Laconia after the roof sagged about halfway into the two-story building and bowed the walls out, officials said. On Tuesday, several people had to flee as the roof fell in at the Over Easy Cafe in Ossipee, N.H. The dangerous snow load has kept roofing contractors and homeowners busy.
