Thomaston — State and local governments' plea to Mainers to stay off the roads during what is being called the Blizzard of 2013 was being heeded in Thomaston Saturday afternoon, Feb. 9. The National Weather Service’s Blizzard Warning only ran to 4 p.m., but the winds were still whipping around town.
