Hey, we had a buildup of about 2 feet, with the bottom six inches sleet (heavy, dense) down here in the Modnadnocks. We still have big piles along highways and at intersections, so we get snowmelt too, and ours freezes at night also. Just don't see it as a big deal. We know it happens, we know what it looks like, and we take care when necessary. Maybe they built our roads differently, though, since I have not seen any large frozen puddles (other than our ponds).

To me, the salty spray from the roadside melt is the worst part. Lots of washer fluid. Not ice.

There is also snow forecast for next week with temps just above zero at night.

OP, where are you going in NH? Temps may vary from near zero to 50's...maybe sure you have adaptable clothing incl gloves/mittens. Agree 81 is preferable to 95...my preference is 81 to 84 in Scranton, take Newburgh-Beacon bridge and avoid all of NYC area traffic. I doubt tinting will be an issue but here's the relevant info.

I'm not far from there. It's still winter up here. Are you staying in the area?

Have done this multiple times. So what is the big deal. Use the GPS in car or get a Garmin.


Avoid NYC and the GW Bridge. Go around NYC.


Driving in either direction. I put the GPS to Scranton, PA. Then put in final destination.


On the flip side - everyone should drive over the GW Bridge at least once - and through the Bronx.


Trip is usually two nights depending on how many stops one makes.


Everyone should stop at Pedro's South of the Border at least once.


And buy a few cartons of cigarettes from one of those low tax Southern states. And you can sell them in NH and make a few bucks. Oh, wait. That is illegal. Forget it.


Motel 6. Around $49.00 to $69.00. They take pets. So bring the dog.

Last year I regularly drove between Wash DC and NH. Sadly, I found that any effort to avoid the NJT and GWB added at least an hour to the trip. I also found that crossing the GWB mid-day was a piece of cake. Sure, sometimes traffic was bumper to bumper, but the distance is short, so it didn't matter, because we'd take the first exit north to the Henry Hudson (then to cross county, Hutch and Merritt.)

You just need to avoid rush hour. It can be an interesting drive. The views of Manhattan never cease to amaze me, too.

The 200 is Front-Wheel Drive, I believe.

It added an hour? Did you go over the Tappan Zee Bridge?

Have relatives that make this drive frequently. They prefer the auto train, may also be fun with kids.

Can always run up the Garden State and take I-87 to I-84 and across. It wouldn't even cost that much time to trip up to the south side of Albany and take I-90 into Boston.
An extra hour to miss a lot of traffic? I'm game.
