More than a foot of snow has fallen in parts of Maine.
“Thousands of people in Maine woke up in the dark Monday morning after an icy blast knocked out power and buried parts of the state in almost two feet of snow seven weeks ahead of winter. More than 130,000 homes and businesses were left without electricity as of Sunday night and Maine Gov. Paul LePage declared a state of emergency. Although Monday was expected to bring warmer weather across the East, snow was still set to fall until lunchtime in parts of northeast Maine. As much as 21 inches fell in Cary, near the border with Canada, and double-digit totals peppered the Maine map.
Snow also fell as far south and east as Charleston, South Carolina — the earliest flakes on record in the city — over the weekend. Farther northwest in the southern Appalachian Mountains, up to 6 inches of snow fell around Asheville, North Carolina, while 2.5 inches were measured in Boone, North Carolina, according to The Weather Channel.” – nbcnews.com
