For once Maine is getting lucky when it comes to winter storms. A huge storm is going to hit the East Coast this weekend, but its impact in Maine will be minimal at most.

But the people in the Mid-Atlantic region of the country won't be so lucky. And the Bangor Police have posted some "helpful" tips on dealing with big snowstorms on their Facebook page. After all, we want those summer tourist dollars back!

Here's the post. It's long, but so worth it!

Dear Mid-Atlantic of these United States of America.I think we all knew it could happen. Every year when you pack up...
