There's not a chance that you didn't know about Sunday night's snow squall that affected most of Central Maine. If you didn't see it out your window then you definitely either read about it on social media or were bombarded with a VERY noise alert to your cell phone from the National Weather Service.

What exactly is a snow squall? Well, a ccording to Wikipedia, "snowsquall, or snow squall, is a sudden moderately heavy snowfall with blowing snow and strong, gusty surface winds.[1] It is often referred to as a whiteout and is similar to a blizzard but is localized in time or in location and snow accumulations may or may not be significant."

We were hearing reports from listeners that they were driving along in normal weather conditions and then BOOM, the weather went from 0-100 real quick. People reported visibility of almost 0 with near whiteout conditions as traffic all over Central Maine was forced to pull over because they couldn't see the road.

Not wanting to miss an opportunity to have a little fun, I tossed on the old LL Bean slippers and headed out to the deck to grab a little video of the action. Check it out!
