When severe weather knocks out power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses, utility crews work around the clock to restore service. But somebody is always going to be the last one to get plugged back in...and it could be you.
If you’re already waiting around for the power to come back on, it’s too late to do prep like charging batteries or buying a generator. But there are some things you can do right now to protect your home and family…and maybe even reclaim some creature comforts.
Your dad made it look easy...maybe. But carving a turkey is a bit more complicated than you might think. It's a big bird, after all, and not every knife is created equal. (Nor is every bird, thanks to the "spatchcock" craze!)
But never fear, humble home-chef, there's somewhere to turn if you're confounded by the prospect of carving: YouTube.
Listed below are some of the most informative and easy-to-follow turkey carving how-to videos on the site.
Pro Tip: Watch them in advance of the family arriving and you'll look like a turkey carving ninja come dinner time.
So this week's feature wasn't exactly buried under an inch of dust and parchment mites, but it speaks to the best part of this time of year: telling scary stories. Back in January, Word of Mouth looked into how these stories have made the jump from summer camp and slumber parties to the web.
Where I grew up in Connecticut, children trick or treat on Halloween night, after dark, for as long as they possibly can. I called my hometown’s clerk to double check: municipal government has nothing to do with it.
Yet in my current home of Portsmouth, the city website declares “the date and time for 'Trick-or-Treat' activities in Portsmouth this year will be Thursday, October 30th, from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.”
As Kansas City finds itself in its first World Series since 1985, its easy to think upon our own championship drought, which ended in 2004.
It’s been a decade since Boston's boys of summer willed their way out of the American League Championship Series in unlikely fashion and finally put to bed the ghosts of Ruth, Dent, Buckner, Boone (and countless others).
We’re back in school again, and back at the polls. Seemed like a good time to listen back to this conversation on the Exchange from 2009. Laura spoke with a few members of a newly appointed task force to examine the state of civics education in NH.
The former White House Press Secretary was also Vice Chair of the National Brain Injury Association. He came to NH for a technology expo focusing on new technology for people living with disabilities in 1995, not long after that he spoke with NHPR’s Laura Kiernan on our Perspectives program.
A New Hampshire college student's proposal for a community kitchen in Boscawen is in line to undergo a USDA-funded feasibility study.
A community kitchen would provide farmers and entrepreneurs with access to processing, packaging and storing facilities. For smaller enterprises, the access to such a facility would mean a chance for expanded production and profits.
Loyal Market Basket customers will often say it's the low prices that keep them coming back. The chain has long been associated with bargain prices on brand-name items, and that was before former CEO Arthur T. Demoulas chose to give customers 4 percent off their entire purchase this year.
But just how much cheaper is Market Basket, when compared with Hannaford and Shaw's?
Many people are under the impression that the Market Basket workers they've seen protesting outside New Hampshire stores are on strike.
That's not the case, at least not for most of them.
"No, we're not striking. We're just rallying," said Justin Desjardins, a 22-year veteran of Market Basket who was protesting outside the downtown Concord store last week. "We all plan on rallying. They're really pushing the 71 stores, 71 rallies."
Most workers are still filling their shifts, but are protesting outside their stores during off-hours.
