Well, more like your editor rode in the passenger's seat of a car that drove very slowly around the still snowy streets. This video clip shows the road conditions entering Concord Center from Route 62. Also of note: Less than 50 percent of sidewalks were clear, so those who were out walking dogs or on snow shoes were often in the roadway.
