There's a lot of snow around these parts now. We got 35.5 inches out here, and Portland broke its all time record of 27.1, with a snowfall of 31.9 inches of whiteness. The Public Works Dept. says it might take weeks to clear the snow off streets and sidewalks. When you live in Maine year round, yes, you like to see it snow. These days, I'll take that early snowfall, usually around Turkey Day, gotta wish for a white Christmas each December, and maybe a day off here and there to watch a Nor'easter roll through the southern part of the state, but that's about it. And a dropping of this size with frigid temperatures right along with it? I say enough already. I hear Punxsutawney Phil didn't get frightened by his shadow. Good! After this stretch of weather, bring on spring! I think I can take it.
