I actually don’t understand about 30% of the references, but maybe you have to be from Grantham or something. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The following is from Police Chief John Parsons:

To: news@granthamnh.net

Once again, we here in New England will be treated to that time honored tradition that is a winter storm.  Can I get a Bronx cheer?


Here is the latest from the State as of noon on March 1.


Precipitation should start around midnight tonight, in the form of rain, and continue through mid- afternoon on Friday.  The heaviest periods of cascading liquid fun are predicted to be after 7am.  Temps are expected to be at or slightly above freezing. If the temps are in our favor, we may see anywhere from ½” to 1” of rain.  If we draw the short straw, then snow amounts could range from 3” to 5”, with some local areas getting up to 8”.  The snow will be of the back breaking heavy/wet variety, so now would be a good time to add Icy Hot to the shopping list.  Wind gusts are expected to be between 30-45mph.  For Saturday and Sunday, temps are going to be in the low 40’s, with wind gusts of 30mph.


For those of us who will be joining the Lone Ranger in taking our trash “To da dump da da dump da dump dump dump” on Saturday, our local Girl Scout Troop will be there selling their delicious boxes of happiness.  For those making a journey to the Post Office, our Scouts will also be at Closet Treasures.  I know that most of us may not want to increase our bottom line, so close to taxes being due.  But in supporting our local youth, we help to enrich their lives ten times over.


Hi Ho Thin Mint away!!
