What Does Winter In Maine Look Like?

By
Real Estate Agent with The Maine Real Estate Network

Many people have their ideas of what winter must look like here in Maine.  Many Mainers watched in amazement as snow in the southern states brought everything to a stand still, and understandably so.  They simply are not accustomed to the white stuff and don't have the equipment to deal with it.

Here in Maine, people take it all in stride.  Actually this year, much like last, I think the states just below us have gotten much more snow than we have.

Life toodles on in Maine no matter how much snow piles up.  The plow keep the main roads clear, the children bundle up and outdoor activities continue no matter how much snow falls.  Snow removal, sledding, and skiing provide plenty of exercise.

A friend sent me this video and I thought I would share it.  Just a snippet of life in Maine in the winter time.

Malcolm:  30 below would irritate me too. :-)  We are at an even 0 right now, so that is more doable.  Is "doable" a real word?  I hear it all the time, but it looks funny in print.  I think the banjo music makes the video as well.

Too late Tamara - I already blew it so I had to go cold turkey for a while, but now I'm inching back and doing a much better job of limiting my time online.     -Twisted entertainment...I Love it!

Thanks Rene, but I think the states just below us got much more.  I think I would complain about 49 degrees and rain. :-)  All is right with the world when we have a nice blanket of snow.

David:  I loved it too.  I love how Mainers know when they are beat and just dump the car and walk.

Good to be back Charles :-)  It is a bit nippy, but I think Malcolm has us beat with 30 below!  Eek!

Kristen,

 

I'm eager to come to Maine. But when I do make my long in the works trip to Bustin Island, you had better believe it will be in July or August. That is a lot of snow

Welcome back, Kristen! I missed you! Great video, too. I agree...winter's not the same without a lot of snow, but it belongs on the ski slopes and back yards where people can enjoy it! Not piled up in mountain-high drifts on the streets so you can't see the car coming along 'til you're halfway into the road! Sheesh!

Scott:  Maine would love to have you.  July and August are great too.  Especially for those trying to escape the heat!  THat is usually about the time I start wishing for snow. :-)

LOL Nina!  Our roads used to be plowed A LOT better.  Most towns have had to cut back, so on days like that one when the snow just kept coming, a lot of towns waited until it was done.  Since we don't really have a traffic issue here it really doesn't seem so bad.  I wouldn't want it on the roads either if I was in a more populated area.  Of course, I'm used to my nice high clearance 4 wheel drive Bronco, so I don't have to worry about getting stuck (insert fingers crossed here.)...I guess I should go knock on wood now or something.
