Northern MAine has gotten more than their usual amount of snow. These are thru the windshield pics of the state trying to plow the snow off Rte #1.

There is so much snow the white line is buried in the snow banks in many places. This is an area that can deal with snow but this year has been a struggle. you can walk up the banks in places and touch telephone wires

I would be taking southbound pictures, and the last I would see of that much snow.

Now just do us people down 1 & 95 a favor a keep it up there please. The weatherman said we'd have a possibility of snow flurries one day last week and I threw the remote at the TV. If I saw that much snow in person I don't know what I'd do, hollow a cave out of it or start running south on 1!

I think that weather system must be heading my way. I'm off for a "spring" break to Cumbria tommorrow, and I've just seen the long range weather forcast predicting minus 4C by Monday.

By my calculation, that -4C is 24.8F. We've seen all too much of that (and less) this winter in Maine. \:\(
