    A-yuh! Wintah is heah!

    Auburn seems to be in a hole in the system at 2:00PM, but GYX shows that there's plenty of storm left.

    That's GREAT NEWS!!!

    I'm afraid that here in East Machias Maine it's going to change over soon. I'm starting to hear a few pellets hitting the window, and the temp has climbed from about 10 this morning to 26 now steadily climbing. We've got probably 5 inches right now.

    South China & Palermo area. Plowed 6" this afternoon. Another 6" has fallen since. Supposed to be 6-10" more tonight.

    You were right, it changed over and it's raining here but the temp is starting to drop and by mid night I guess we are supposed to get the worst of it then, might end up going threw half the day tomorrow.

    Wow, warmed up to 12 this morning, but winds still up around 20mph (but gusting to 39 according to the WeatherBug). That makes a WCF of at least -6.

    According to the tv weather people Auburn had 11.5" as of 11:00 last night. At 06:00 today they upped it to 15.5 in Auburn. So far it looks like that's about it, except for the drifting now.

    I can still see the mail box, so won't have to pedal the loader this morning, just use the old Cherokee!

    How did you guys fair "Down East"? We got hammered the night before last. Averaged about 12" for the area, but the wind made the drifting bad. Woke up to a beautiful clear, but cold morning here today. Got some more cleanup to do. Rumour has it more snow for the weekend.

    I'm on the Coast of Maine near the Canadian border and we only got about 6 inches before turning to rain. Still got to plow but it's a mess now. Every thing is ice. Bitter cold now.

    All snow in Auburn area. Wind and sun on Thu put a pretty good crust on it, but no rain or ice here. Hardly used wipers when plowing. Ended up being 15.5" (according to CH13 weather people) for us.

    Now to wing it all back and get ready for the next one!

    Hey OleTower, I'm an old and ugly guy but can I get your cell number? Just in case the Auburn town plows box the end of my driveway closed again, like last week.

    I just figured that anyone that responds to a cell call is a good friend to have! I promise to answer in a 'tiny voice'. heh heh :)
