I bet if you went back in the old old pictures of winters past you would find some that are very similiar...Awesome...Welcome to a real Maine winter. This winter isn't abnormal, this is just what it should be.

I'm sitting in Florida looking at your beautiful pictures.  I'm just glad I'm not carrying mail up Mountain, Megunticook and along Sea street any more.  I remember a big storm in 1988 and I decided to transfer inside as a window clerk. Great decision!
