It was a balmy 32 degrees Downeast today – a most welcome change from the sub zero temps that have lingered. Traveling the roads the past few days has been harrowing. Snow on top of ice is never fun. Today, rich with sunshine, gave the crews a chance to clean up the mess on the roads.
As I headed out late this afternoon, the sky grew dark and the snow began to fall over the blueberry barrens. It blew sideways across the road making it difficult to see at moments. Five minutes later it was gone!
