NH plow crews welcome spring snow despite slick conditions

CONCORD - It may be the first day of spring but that doesn’t mean New Hampshire was spared from winter weather.

Despite your opinions of this morning’s snow, NH1 News was up bright and early with plow crews who say their wallets were welcoming the sight of snow in early spring.

"Happy spring I guess but I mean for the rest of the week who knows?" plow operator Roy Bell said. "It could be 60 the next day."

Anderson Euripe, a groundskeeper at a Manchester condo complex, said this year if the snow didn’t pile up he wouldn't have gotten work, meaning he wouldn’t have gotten paid.

"No work no pay," Euripe said. "I mean snow like this is great because were getting paid right now. It’s been slow, slow and miserable and when it does snow it's not a lot just a little bit."

Despite some early morning accidents on Monday which included an overturned plow truck, the guys who need the snow to put food on the table said "take it slow but bring it on."

"Just you know doing some clean up last week and now here we are loaded back up and ready to go for snow again," plow operator Ray Baker-Cromwell said. "But I mean it is aright this one last hoo-rah."

After Monday’s storm, NH1 News also met some residents who are weary of what mother nature may throw at New England next.

"You almost have to wait till April to be done with winter," Bob Fuller of Hooksett said. "You just take your time and remember it's spring but it’s still winter."
