Winter Storm impending

Good afternoon,
The weather forecast is currently calling for a significant, disruptive weather pattern to come into our area Wednesday afternoon/evening through  Thursday. With the forecast calling for 8-12 inches of wet, heavy snow and ice/rain, we encourage all residents to prepare for power outages and potentially hazardous road conditions. Our police, fire and highway personnel are actively preparing for and monitoring the storm and wish to remind folks to prepare for conditions. Town Hall may experience a delayed opening/disruption to normal business hours Wednesday evening and Thursday. Please call the Selectmen's Office before coming if possible (603-284-7701).

If using a generator, always employ appropriate safety precautions (see: https://www.eversource.com/content/business/safety/electric-safety/generator-safety for a quick overview). Please never touch downed power lines and beware deep snow can hide downed lines. When in doubt, stay home if possible! If needed, the Central Fire Station will be open for a warming center.
