The light of the full moon on the new-fallen snow made for some otherworldly atmosphere this week.

This week: one by one, local school districts are deciding when to lift the masking requirements. The Environmental Protection agency gets involved in Holtec's plan to dump a million gallons of radioactive water from the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station into Cape Cod Bay. And today marks 70 years from a legendary rescue at sea.

We have those stories and more, as CAI News Director Steve Junker speaks with some of the region’s leading journalists.

This week's guests include CAI's Jennette Barnes and Sam Houghton; Louisa Hufstader of the Vineyard Gazette; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Mary Ann Bragg of the Provincetown Independent; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; and CAI's Eve Zuckoff,.
