Hang in there Maine, we will get through this!

It has been a wild morning so far here in the State of Maine, snow is coming down at an epic clip, and that's the way it will be for the next several hours.

With heavy wind & wet snow, it is inevitable that many people either already have, or will lose power, especially if those lines get bogged down with snow. The stupid wind doesn't help either!

As seen in a Maine Reddit video post, crews from Versant and Central Maine Power, hit the roads early in a preventative measure, to try and get out ahead of what is to come. Keep in mind that if the winds gust over a certain amount, it is just too dangerous to send people up in the buckets to asses problems, so patience is key in these situations.

They’re rolling in folks! We must now face the reality of the next few days.
