He was one of the lucky ones and didn't loose his power. The pictures he sent to me in outtie mail shows thick ice all over.
Like Bugg said he has a fireplace and plenty of wood to keep him and his house warm.

I stopped counting all the penalties after the first quarter. Don't worry you didn't miss much of a game. I need to have my mouth washed out after today, that's how bad it was.
Stay warm and becareful.

Bangor, I have a nephew in Penobscot and started going thru the blogs and found yours...am so excited because now when I see extreme weather headed your way (by reading your blog) I can call him to let him know what is going on (he is a tugboat captain so he probably knows before me) but i can call and act like i know more (being his aunt) hehe

I keep hearing 145,000 CMP customers are without power...some won't get it back until Wednesday or Thursday. Was it really that bad? It seems we missed something awful. Granted we had the freezing rain and everything but dang...
Member Since: November 28, 2006 Posts: 9 Comments: 433
Morning, Walker... Hope you have power or get it back soon, if you don't. I see the whole NE has been hit hard with that ice storm. At least, you do have a fireplace and lots of wood stacked up.

Stay safe and keep warm!

Im going to go out on a limb here and say 50+ degress that it got today (earlier) is unusual im guessing? Mild day...still weird seeing some green grass in December. Confusion indeed. Maybe no snow until Christmas this year?

Good Morning {{Bangor}}!

All is good here, just like many it looked worse then what it was. We did have a few gust around the area up to 50mph, but for the most it stayed around 20-25. Rain fell slopw and steady whic is what we needed. Florida has turned into a dust bowl.

The WU radar is showing rain for you, was hoping to see the snow.:-)

I wish a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Count your blessings instead of your crosses; Count your gains instead of your losses.

Count your joys instead of your woes; Count your friends instead of your foes.

Count your smiles instead of your tears; Count your courage instead of your fears.

Count your full years instead of your lean; Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.

Count your health instead of your wealth; Count on God instead of yourself.

Happy Thanksgiving, to you and yours! May you have a wonderful day, filled with blessings.


When I have food,
help me to remember the hungry;

When I have work,
help me to remember the jobless;

When I have a home,
help me to remember those who have no home at all;

When I am without pain,
help me to remember those who suffer,

And remembering,
help me to destroy my complacency;

Bestir my compassion,
and be concerned enough to help;

By word and deed,
those who cry out for what we take for granted.
