    Here in Eastern Maine we have gotten 3/4-1" of ice accumulation since Friday. The freezing rain has since moved on but the ice remains and tens of thousands remain without power and hundreds of linemen and tree crews are working around the clock to repair. Here are A few pictures of the storm. Enjoy.

    It's been on the news here that PSEG has sent out 50 man crew to Maine to help out restore power. they're required to work 16 hour shifts until the lights are back on up there. Really great that other states / power companies are willing to help out, especially this time of year.

    Safe time to all those affected up there..

    Central Maine Power says there are still over 2,300 customers without power in my county. I think it was 21,000+ statewide last time I looked.
    There was one death, in Waldo County, from carbon monoxide while somebody was refueling their generator.

    I live in Hancock County. Bangor hydro is still reporting of 9,000+ people still without power and won't be restored until the weekend. Right now we are 4 days with out power. It sucks yes but the only thing I can say is thank god for the wood stove and gravity feed of water from the well for everything.

    Thanks for sending the help our way! Still lots of people without power. Now it's snowing today, with 4-7" expected.

    Finally got some ice storm pics on here. Sorry for the delay. We've had two decent snow storms since then and more ice. Been running around the clock. More snow on tap for tomorrow! No complaints here! (except for no sleep! lol)

    Yeah I know it. Poor plow! :cry: It's somewhat cleaned off now. Lots of wet snow stuck to it though, and now it's below zero here so it's frozen on. Old Man Winter is pissed this year! He's bringing it!!
