Here’s How Much Snow Central Maine is Going to Get From This Nor’Easter
Was anyone else surprised to wake up to no snow on the ground and to still be looking at their muddy driveways? Oh, your driveway is paved so you don't have to deal with the springtime mud? Well aren't you just Mr and/or Mrs AWESOME! Okay, I'm digressing a little bit here- also, if you can't tell, I'm wicked McPissed that my driveway isn't paved.
Anyway, you didn't click on this article to hear me (Matt James) bitch about my unpaved driveway. Sorry for saying 'bitch' in an article about snow accumulations. That wasn't very professional of me, was it? Actually, I'm not even that sorry. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the most sorry for using the B word in this article, I'm at most a 4.
Okay, now that we've gotten through that, let's move on to the weather shan't we? Shall we? Is it shall or shan't?
Today's storm is still coming, despite the fact that we woke up to a heaping pile of nothingness. For us, here in the Central Maine area anyway, the storm is going to make it's debut around lunchtime. So whip up a PB&J with some Cape Cod chips and get ready to party.
Last week, we were billing this as the biggest storm of the year, because that's what the meteorologists in their tight little suits were saying. And, while it's still going to be a big storm, I don't think it'll be the 'biggest of the year'. But, what do I know? My suit is only tight because I'm fat and it doesn't fit right.
According to Ryan Munn ova to WGME 13, the storm is already making it's way into Southern Maine.
And, it's gonna get friggin' windy. He didn't say friggin' FYI. Wind gusts for Central Maine over the next day and a half or so could surge over 50 miles per hour. Couple that with the wicked heavy and wet snow and it's a recipe for power outages. Worry not, CMP and Versant already have their storm crews on stand by. However, you won't be able to call the Maine PUC and complain about it because they're closed today, much like the entire State of Maine. J-Mills decided to pull the plug early and give all state employees the day off. Meanwhile our kids are headed off to school. Da'Faq?
As far as the winter storm warning goes, Central Maine will remain under that warning until 2 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon. So take'er easy until then, iight?
By now, you're pretty angry that I made you scroll this far to get to the meat and potatoes of why you came here. But, if I'm gonna be irritated that my driveway isn't paved, you're not leaving here without a slight bit of irritation either, okay?
According to WGME, we can expect to see anywhere from half a foot, to a whole foot of snow before this late-season nor-easter blows out of dodge. Also, be careful with the shoveling, you don't need to have a coronary over it.
I mean for crying out loud, the temps are going to surge back into the upper 40's when the storm is over. We'll be mowing the lawn by next Monday tops.
