MANCHESTER, NH – A Winter Weather Advisory is in place for Hillsborough County and surrounding areas starting 11 a.m. on Dec. 9 until 3 p.m. Dec. 10.

Snow is expected to bring with it slippery road conditions and poor visibility for drivers. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 5 inches are expected.

The warning is issued for the following counties:

Cheshire, Eastern Hillsborough, Interior Rockingham, Coastal Rockingham and Western and Central Hillsborough.

The National Weather Service says to expect periods of snow which will cause travel difficulties. Drivers should be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and should use caution while driving.

On the other hand, the Weather Underground is calling for only 1 to 3 inches of show on Saturday, with another 1-3 inches on Tuesday. Other news outlets are saying 6 to 8 inches. Who can you trust?

As usual, it’s a safe bet to stock up on bread and milk, make sure your snow shovel is handy, drive with caution, and enjoy the snow. Have some fun!

    Why should people stock up on milk and bread? They can’t survive 1 day without the provisions they already have at home? All you’re doing is contributing to unnecessary crowding at the supermarkets and on the roads. You’re creating a safety hazard for no good reason.

    • Hey, there PatG. Thanks for your genuine concern, but in the news industry, this is the perpetual “joke” about snow in the forecast, that people rush out for bread and milk, rendering the shelves bare due to snow panic. I don’t think I need to prompt anyone to go to the store, it’s just a way to liven up the otherwise routine snow forecast story.

        I took it to be tongue-in-cheek… but too many people take it seriously and work themselves into a panic. I guarantee when I go to the supermarket later on like I usually do on Saturday, the supplies of milk and bread will be noticeably depleted.

        • It may well be depleted but I’m not taking responsibility for empty shelves, or those forced to eat soda and crackers because they failed to stock up on bread and milk. LOL. Good luck, PatG. I appreciate your point of view, and am just trying to have a little fun with the “winter in NH” stories.
