PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- While a blizzard was brewing in Portland, we hit the streets looking for people who had to work despite the weather.

From plow drivers, to postal workers, to dog moms and the people who collect shopping carts in grocery store parking lots, everyone NEWS CENTER encountered was wearing an extra layer or two, and trying to make the most of having to face so much snow.

Most said their number one priority when working in the storm is to be cautious and stay safe.
