Northern Maine, April , 2019. Almost Easter and it is still snowing. The weather forecasters last night said this is the 4th highest number of inches of snow since the reporting of those matters started for our area. They expect to break into the next rank by this weekend and we will hit the third highest amount of snow in recorded history here. Joy. And we are still pumping out our basement around the clock.
By time this post goes live it will be a couple days since this actually occurred. Yesterday, Mark and I headed into Bangor to meet with the neurosurgeon. And we were met with snow the entire trip. It started off slow like this. It had been snowing for awhile already and roads that had previously been clear started to show snow accumulation.
As we got closer to town, the flakes got larger and it was snowing harder and faster.
In total our area got about seven inches. I think this is the Penobscott River. A week or so ago it would have been totally covered in ice. Here you can see the ice breaking down into sections and whole areas of the river open.
This shot was on our way home. By then the snow had stopped, although it has since started again. I love taking photos of barns in the snow. And honestly I was so tired yesterday that I don’t even remember where this is. But isn’t it cool looking almost buried in snow. As long as you don’t actually live and work there. Hahahahaha!
And then we have today. The day after the other photos. I took this picture from inside the car. That is the road going to our house. The wind was blowing like crazy with 40 mile an hour gusts. I was so glad to get back home and inside. Still more snow to come this weekend. Spring? Wherefore art thou? Cause I seriously miss you!
