Over six feet of snowfall in the last two weeks, and we are bracing for another twelve inches Saturday evening through Sunday.
Icicles looking deceptively pretty in the first sunshine in about ten days

Six foot snow banks make driving a bit hazardous
Portland harbor viewed from the East End in winter
An oil barge being tugged over to the Merrill terminal to unload
An oil tanker awaits its turn in the channel

Fort Gorges with Peaks Island in the background.
This is what happens to your rear view mirror when snowbanks get in the way and a second driver tries to crowd in where only one car will fit. . . . 45$ for the new one. The plastic housing is cracked but may be saveable.
