The winter is bad! But to be honest I think NH (New England in general) has great weather. We really don;t get hit with tropical storms or hurricanes or tornadoes. Its very rare when we do. Flooding is an issue within my town because its not leveled in certain areas. So some shopping plazas become flooded. The only issue we have thats every year is winter storms. NH gets hit bad with snow. But the fall, spring and summer are wonderful and really we barely experience any weather issues. It doesn't rain too much either.

Living here is great! Everything is pretty local and easy access to highways.
Hooksett is a suburb. So to really get most things I need I have to go into the city, Manchester. I mean it has a lot of shopping plazas around but nothing great. What it does have is a lot of pharmacies. Anything you need from a pharmacy, its in close distance and they're all clean and well staffed. The grocery store situation isn't great. There are two in town and they both aren't chains I particularly enjoy.
