    Hey I remember this. We were out of power for about 7 days. I taught myself to run a chainsaw that storm. I had to get like 25+ hours running a saw in total with that storm. I was 14 at the time. A year ago.

    I remember that one last year, I got pulled out of my plowtruck and spent the next few days with a saw cutting trees out of the road, pretty fun actually.

    I love it when that happens, gets to the wood pile so much faster when it's pre-split.

    That was some storm. A friend and i drove thru that to Presque Isle, was all snow after Patton and we could'nt get gas until Orono, no power anywhere on the way up. Was worth the 14 hour ride. Still the best snowmobiling i've ever encountered. We were the only ones there for four days.
