Question Seascoast area: Cable? Snow Plows?

Asking about the SEACOAST area only (like Dover, Durham, Exeter, Portsmouth, etc.):

1. Is it difficult to get cable tv or satellite in those areas?
2. Do these areas have State, city/township snow plows that shovel the roads and highways when it snows automatically? Asking cause the side roads innercity Chicago do not get shoveled until all the main roads are done, which could be a few days. This can be a problem for many women.
I am guessing your winter starts somewhere in November or December and is really bad thru March much like Chicago or am I wrong? I found (after a number of years in Chicago) myself staying indoors from November thru March in Illinois due to the cold.

DSL is available in larger towns and, I assume, that means most of the Seacoast area, but I still have some questions left.
Thanks all!

It is not difficult at all to get cable/satellite in the seacoast area.

The snowplow crews both state and local do excellent jobs plowing/sanding the highways, main roads and secondary roads when there are storms. I live on a little side street in Exeter with just a few houses on it and my street is most always plowed in time to go to work in the am. Of course, if there is a massive storm with 18" or more, it could take a while but for the most part, you should not have difficulty getting out on the roads during a small/midsize storm.

It can snow as early as October and as late as May. For the most part winter on the seacoast is late November until April. We do seem to get hit hard in March and even April some years.

Tootsie, cable TV and/or satellite is easy in all the above areas, however, you need to be aware of obstructions that may not allow for satellite. The satellite for cable is in the lower south-west sky, and I can't get satellite unless I put a big ole' satellite dish in my front yard, so that's out of the question unless some of my neighbors cut down a couple of their 100'+ white pine trees. So if that's something that interests you, it will be site specific.

Plowing: state roads are cleaned beginning with the first flake. I'm always impressed with how good of a job they do. Secondary (non-state) roads are covered by the town/city, and would be be answered by someone who has lived a winter in those specific towns, like Annabelle did. Also check with citygirl52 who posts often, I think she lives in the Hampton area.

I find our snowiest month to be February, but I suppose we could find specifics on that...

You have to make cookies for the snowplow operators so your street remains high on his list!

Yeah...
And don't throw your shovel at the truck when it comes by and dumps a couple feet of snow/ice into your driveway... (grew up on a main road... how we HATED that snowplow driver who was just driving along and doing his job... of course back then it was the KIDS job to shovel the snow from the driveway!!)
