LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: Something else the candidates are up against is the weather in New Hampshire. We saw John McCain sitting in front of the crackling fire, we saw Al Gore in a nice warm coffee shop.
Look here: Here's our -- CNN's Jeanne Meserve.
Got the short straw -- get the short straw, Jeanne?
JEANNE MESERVE, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Oh, in so my ways, Lou. You can't begin to know.
We're here at Alvern High School (ph) in Hudson, New Hampshire. You're likely to see some buses drive past me as I talk to you because school is getting out here about half an hour early; just one of the many effects that this snow storm is having up here.
The presidential candidates are here. Thus far, it hasn't resulted in any cancellation of events, but some of them are a little bit late on their schedules. Bill Bradley arrived here for an address this morning about a half an hour late. He was asked about the weather and said, not bad. Well, that might be his impression. I think other people may have a different idea. Projections are of a snowfall between eight and 14 inches here, with the possibility it's going to mix later with some sleet and rain. This is bad news for driving, already treacherous. And for the candidates who are making their way around this state on buses, it really could be hair-raising.
School cancellations like the one here all over Southern New Hampshire. There also have been some airport delays. But, thus far, the candidates are going full bore. That New Hampshire primary is only a week away and they are going to get around just as much as they can to meet and talk to as many New Hampshire citizens as they can to round up some votes for that primary.
Jeanne Meserve, CNN, reporting live from Hudson, New Hampshire.
WATERS: OK, good luck, Jeanne.
NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR: She's got a good spirit about her, doesn't she?
WATERS: She sure does.
ALLEN: Hope she can get inside now.
