Can anyone give me realistic driving times as opposed to google's traffic-less weather-less influenced times?

Im interested in trip times from southern NH manchester area to various spots.
Boston, Portsmouth, Portland Maine.

Also what are snow day times for areas like pittsburg, Jefferson Notch, and killington vt, Okemo, and Stowe?

I know it's a lot but anything you can contribute will be appreciated.

Nashua to Boston is roughly one hour as long as it's a weekend, before 6 am or after 9 am.

Manchester to Boston - one hour more or less (varies due to traffic and weather)
Manchester to Portsmouth - one hour, sometimes less
Manchester to Portland - 2 hours
Manchester to Killington - 2 hours
Manchester to Stowe - 3.5 hours (easy drive, 89 all the way, then 10 miles of bumpy country road)

Driving south to Boston or 128/Waltham area has many potential pitfalls. I have seen times on Route 93 south at the Lawrence bridge - traffic backed up all the way to Boston. On Route 3 south I have seen traffic backed up starting at the 495 interchange all the way to 128. Nashua alone can get backed up easily. Nashua has redone the Route 3 highway and in some spots there are 5 lanes on each side and it still backs up for no apparent reason.

And coming the other way - leaving Boston/128 heading north - on a Friday afternoon/evening is a nightmare.

Route 95/Route 1 in the Saugus Peabody area can be a potential nightmare also. In both directions.

Why Dukakis cancelled the 95 by-pass from Revere to Pebody and cancelled the southeast expressway is beyond me.

Manchester to Boston is about an hour, it can be under an hour if you drive mid-day or late at night to avoid the traffic, and your start and destination are close to the highway. With traffic it's a gamble, it can be a quick and painless hour upwards of 2 hours.

Depends on when you leave. If you're taking I-93, it'll take 50-70 minutes if you leave home between 5:30 and 6:00 in the morning. If you leave between 6:30 and 8:00, you could be looking down the barrel of 100 minutes. Weekends are, by and large, smooth sailing but if you're commuting for work, you can expect to spend 2-3 hours in the car round-trip every day.
