"It came at just the right or the wrong time, depending on your perspective," said James Brown, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine.
While the snow blitz was brief — lasting only about six hours — the storm left a swath of 6 to 8 inches across most of southern New Hampshire, with some places receiving even more.
Many schools dismissed students early to get them home safely before the heaviest snow arrived, but some buses still had to navigate the snow-covered roads as the snow picked up around the time that schools closed.
"There's no crashes, it's just slow going," said state police spokesman Lt. Nicole Armeganian. She said the southbound side seemed to be more gridlocked than northbound.
In Londonderry, a U.S. Postal Service vehicle slid off of Mammoth Road and a train reportedly became stuck in snow on Main Street in Nashua.
