The plows were back out in Maine overnight. And it's almost MAY. It got us thinking about how Maine compares to the rest of the country when it comes to snow amounts. I mean, if it snows HALF the year around here, you would think we have to be the snowiest state around.
The temperature at the Portland Jetport this morning was -1 degrees. That's the first time Portland has been below zero all winter. In Fryeburg is was 13 below! But these are warm temps compared to the top 10 coldest days in Portland History. The coldest ever was MINUS 39 DEGREES in 1939. Just to make you feel even colder, the record high temperature on this day (February 12) is 54 degrees. That was back in 1984.
