For the Concord area this snowstorm is pretty typical with school closures and plows on the road.

Tracie Wilson was out with her dog Jaya on Pierce Street for their morning walk in Concord.

“Usually, there’s not that many people out after the snow like this, but we’re getting a little bit of a late start, so we’re running into more of our neighbors out cleaning up,” she said as people cleaned off cars and cleaned sidewalks.

Wilson said she accepts the weather for what it is.

“I live here in New Hampshire, so this is what I expect,” she said. But since it’s March she also expected the snow to melt soon.

A few streets over, Peter Audette was snowblowing a neighbor’s driveway.

“Nothing you can do about the weather,” he said, though he’s wishing for spring.

“Yesterday it was all bare,” he said, pointing to his snow-covered backyard. “Oh well.”

The winter storm warning remained in effect until 1 p.m Thursday but the National Weather Service predicted light snow into the evening and a chance of snow on Friday and Saturday.
