This winter, the snow has come fast and deep through the Northeast.
While it’s obvious that in Maine, in winter, it’s going to snow, it doesn’t make digging out your car or plowing the dooryard any more fun.
And in a few towns, that has meant getting through a mound of snow piling up about as tall as your average Sasquatch (about 10 feet).
Machias and Sanford broke all-time daily snowfall this winter and the town of East Surry had about 10 feet of snow through Feb. 4 (that is, excluding snowfall from this past weekend).
A good number of towns broke daily snowfall records (compared with past totals for that specific day) and eight towns broke monthly snowfall records (mostly for November).
Below are the towns that broke daily, monthly and all-time records, a look at snowfall by month and a ranking of towns that have gotten the biggest dumps.
