It’s Impossible To Forget The Horrible Ice Storm That Ravaged Maine In 1998

Most Mainers know about snow. In fact, most Mainers are so well-acquainted with snow that a few inches of wintry weather doesn’t slow things down. The kids go to school, the adults go to work and life pretty much continues as always. It takes a lot to slow a Mainer down in the winter. But, in 1998, we received winter weather that forced many of us to stop our normal lives and accept that nature is in control far more than we ever will be.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

On winter days when things are a bit more manageable, make sure you’re doing something fun in the snow! We recommend this fun toboggan park at Camden Snow Bowl!
