    Yeah, I just dug out of my half inch of snow, sort of. I needed an excuse to use the plow I just put on my four wheeler. Not much to clean up, but it was fun all the same.

      You must live in a charmed area. See the totals elsewhere?

        We’re right on the immediate coast (looking out to open ocean). I just got back from a trip inland about ten miles and they had about six inches.

      Named winter storms caught me off-guard too. An earlier one was Draco. No mention of A, B, and C that I know of. Not a bad idea since many storms are so widespread and can be killers. Anyone know of a list?

        Caution!
        Above is easily entertained.

      Google much? Athena, Brutus, Caesar, Draco, Euclid….

      My thought, exactly! Good grief! But it gives those with ugly sweaters and hair that doesn’t move a chance to spread breathless hype over the land …

      it is for some people. I just came in from blowing out the yard. Awesome. And this is Maine after all. Don’t like snow? move to the gulf of mexico.

    14-16″ in St Agat…..ho hum.

    Best decision I made all year was to pay someone to dig me out. My aching joints wouldn’t tolerate pushing that old snow blower through mounds of snow. But this is luxury I hope my back doesn’t get too used to. They say another snowfall is coming soon.

    17 inches of snow in the county is nothing more than like having a snow-flurry in southern Maine…..Mainers have become weakened winter-time citizens….used to be that a “major winter storm” meant something different than 6 to 12 inches…..Crazy……

      The banks will be so high, they’ll have to wing ’em back and raise the snow fences in the fields!

    It really wasn’t a big deal.

    • We got more snow in this storm then we did all of last year!

  • So glad that it finally snowed :) We got more snow in 24 hours then we did all of last year

    16″-17″ measured in Selden (northwest corner of Weston – southern Aroostook). More drifted, in places. Hard to plow with ice underneath.
